Grandview Commons Town Center Passes Common Council

March 21, 2012 4:58 AM

Many thanks to those who have participated over these years, those who attended meetings, wrote e-mails and letters, and engaged in the process.

The Common Council passed the Comprehensive and Neighborhood Plan amendments, and the zoning change and plat.

There won't be shovels in the ground tomorrow, though, since this is the first step - the one called the General Development Plan (GDP). Before anything is ready to be built, it must go through a similar process at a more detailed level - the Specific Implementation Plan.

There are many opportunities to improve design details at this level, and the grocery store and a required second "retail or shop building" will undergo these steps as the first buildings on the site.

As soon as a schedule is developed, I will share it here.

Thank you again for working so hard, for so long on this project. I know it has been difficult and for those who were opposed to the proposal, I admire your tenacity to advocate for what you want for the neighborhood. No one won or lost; we all lived our beliefs in a democratic process. Please stay engaged in the next round.
