November 25, 2019 at 7:30 PM--AGENDA--(INCIDENTALLY, THE RE-ZONING LAWS #9 AND #10 HAVE NOT YET BEEN VOTED ON).
A member of the Village Board will be joining via video conference at 6419 Sand Point Way, Seattle, WA 98115. Members of the public have the right to attend the meeting at any of the locations.
1. Discussion on Public Hearing comments and Village Planning Board/Westchester County Planning Board comments in relation to the proposed North Riverside Avenue/Municipal Place Gateway Area zoning updates.
THE GAZETTE--THIS WEEK'S ISSUE--PAGE 1 ARTICLE--ON THE LAST PUBLIC HEARING OF 11/18----POINTS OUT that other than board members, a huge majority opposed the rezoning either as res. + comm. OR 100% residential. Mentions comments from people on Wells Ave, etc. about their view--additionally OVERSIZED FOR THE PROPERTY CITING A HOUSE BEING BUILT ON GRAND ST. as an example, etc. As always you should read the article in its entirety.
There is also a fascinating letter from Mr. Pugh extolling that this plan goes way back, and among other things, how there would be climate change benefits since there would be less driving. Again, do read the letter in its entirety.

So essentially we paid too much for the property when we got sued and had to settle. In addition to losing the annual taxes, we have to compromise our zoning and the lives of people who live in the area and cater to developer if we are ever going to get our money back. Smart move guys! I would have rather had a drug store that was planned. It wasn't going to be three stories that's for sure!ReplyDelete
