Galileo Drive Item Referred to Next Plan Commission Meeting

January 22, 2018 12:32 PM

Hi Neighbors,

Quick but important update regarding the Galileo Drive extension as part of the further Grandview Development-we now expect this item to be referred to the 2/5/18 plan commission meeting.

Because this item should be referred this evening, there should be no need for folks to plan to come out on this rainy afternoon to testify at the plan commission meeting.

Please join me in thanking Plan Commission member Alder Ledell Zellers for being willing to refer this item and Veridian Homes for granting an extension to the city's promised 90 day review timeline to have this matter brought up at the next plan commission meeting instead of this one.

Recall that city staff recommended the Galileo Drive extension in their final report on this item which was published late last week. Obviously we would have preferred additional notice, and time to digest and discuss this as a neighborhood, but we recognize that city staff work very hard for us and have tremendous demands on their time.

I will be working with city staff to put together a neighborhood meeting so that we can discuss this further and get city staff's reasoning on their recommendation for the Galileo Drive extension.

In summary, this issue will not be decided at Plan Commission tonight, and we will meet as a neighborhood to discuss the issue. As always please feel empowered to write in with your thoughts.

Thanks and stay dry,

Amanda Hall

Alder, District 3
