WE NEED YOUR ATTENDANCE -- May 10th at City Hall Council Chambers -- Final Decision Will be Made
City Council in a hearing on April 4th to take a final vote on the tentative, unanimous upholding of the PDNA appeal of March 7th chose instead to reopen the record to allow the developer an opportunity to submit a revised design, most specifically with regard to the greenway. This was an unprecedented decision that puts City Council in a position to make a design decision which they openly admitted they were unqualified to do. Under the current law, review of a revised design for this project cannot go back to the Design Commission which would be the appropriate body.
While the neighborhood was successful in at least forcing some change of the design, if City council fails to address all the issues of this project, there is a possibility that the neighborhood and the city will lose out to an inferior development that will set a bad precedent.
There is still a strong chance that our neighborhood will prevail, but we need your support and your dollars. We have fought a good fight, but it’s not over yet. With this unanticipated occurrence, legal fees will be even greater. We ask our community to show up and let their voices be heard by writing to city council, talking to your neighbors and showing up at City Council on May 10th.
