Stone House and Frank Productions Neighborhood Meeting - Report with Slides

Stone House and Frank Productions Neighborhood Meeting - Report with Slides

There was a fantastic turnout for the neighborhood meeting on July 24 about the proposal by Stone House Development for the 1000 block of E. Washington Ave.  We had over 100 in attendance.  Helen Bradbury, Stone House Development, gave an overview of the project.  The Stone House slides which were presented can be found here.  Both she and Rich Arneson (also of Stone House) answered questions.  Melissa Huggins, representing Frank Productions, shared information regarding their proposal for the 2,500 capacity music venue.  The Frank Productions slides which were presented can be found here.  Both Melissa and Fred Frank answered questions.  City staff from Planning, Zoning, Traffic Engineering and the Police Department were also at the meeting and responded to questions. 

Most importantly I heard what attendees like about the proposal and things that are issues.  The biggest concern expressed was with parking. Noise was also mentioned several times as a concern...particularly in association with the prospect of venue attendees parking in the neighborhood.  There was enthusiasm expressed about the affordable housing and about the prospect of additional jobs in the neighborhood.  The music venue also garnered supportive comments.

I encourage you to continue to share your thoughts with me.  This is very early in the process.  As I mentioned last night there are a number of opportunities to speak up about the proposal.  You can talk with me directly, send emails, participate on/attend neighborhood steering committee meetings, and testify at the city hearings which will be held related to this project proposal.  There will also be additional general neighborhood meetings.  Your ideas, your concerns, what you like/don't like about this proposal matter to me.  I also appreciate that Stone House and Frank Productions are listening and are willing to consider/make changes as a result of what they hear.

Again, my thanks to the many people who who care about what makes our neighborhood a great place to live and who speak up to help get things right for our future.
