Please join MadWest Neighborhood Association and myself for a preliminary information input session prior to the City Planning "Open House" on Thursday December 15 to discuss the update of the "High Point - Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan".
This is extremely important to residents as this plan encompasses the current undeveloped property bordered by High Point Rd, Midtown Road, HWY M and Newberry Heights and potentially has impact to a number of surrounding communities as well.
