Second Virtual Neighborhood Meeting to Discuss 1617 Sherman Avenue Project

November 27, 2022 9:12 PM

Dear Neighbor,

Vermilion Development is seeking a zoning change for the property at 1617 Sherman Avenue from Suburban Employment (SE) to Transitional Residential – Urban 2 (TR-U2). The development would include the demolition of an underutilized office building to be replaced with multifamily housing. The proposal consists of four (4) newly constructed buildings containing a range of home sizes from studio to three-bedrooms. The proposal includes both indoor and outdoor automobile parking and sheltered bike parking.

After hearing from many neighbors, I shared your feedback and concerns with the developer. The developer took those concerns seriously and wanted to show a new iteration of the project and wants to collect your feedback. So I am organizing a second virtual neighborhood meeting to address a new iteration of Vermilion's proposal on December 8th, 2022, at 6pm. As I am resigning from the council between now and then, Alder Benford will be there to hear community concerns.

You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone, or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering at the link to be added.  

Hope you can join on December 8th.

Best regards,
