PLANNING MEETING UPATE
On Friday, we had a text exchange with Councilman Hall, who said:
I was waiting to get the Property owner, Developer and Engineer all on the room together with us. It's been deferred from Planning this week so we can all meet. What day is good for you?
Today, Planner Logan Elliot sent this email, stating the item has been deferred until the September 9 MPC meeting. There will be no official notices sent for the 9/9 meeting.
Thank you for reaching out and for working to organize the residents of this area.
Confirmed that the applicant has requested to defer this item to the September 9 MPC meeting. There will not be a discussion or opportunity to speak on this item at the 8/26 meeting so I do not recommend attending this Thursday’s meeting if this is the only case that you are interested in.
I still plan on going to the Planning Commission Meeting anyway - to acquaint myself with the place and process, as well as ensure it does in fact get deferred. Technically it's still on the agenda. You're welcome to join me, of course. Please let me know if you'll be there!
MEETING WITH COUNCILMAN HALL, MR. DALE AND MR. OVERBY
One of the reasons for deferral was so Councilman Hall could set up a community meeting with the developer/engineer (Mr. Dale, presumably), the owner (Mr. Overby), and the community. A date and place has not been established. I'm going to suggest either next Weds 9/1 or Thursday 9/2.
Please encourage other voters in your house and your neighbors to respond to the survey. I'll post results this Thursday.
