WEll done neighborhood!
I think this is the first meeting I ever attended of the
City Council in which they voted unanimously in favor of our neighborhood
concerning the Buranis property. The speakers tonite were excellent and
professional and I think that the Council did want to support us. In addition,
staff also came out in support of the additional language proposed by the HOA's
and that helped in our effort to get this thing done.
While it is great having this part behind us, we must remain diligent in keeping
up with the map planning phase. A lot of conditions can be put on O'Brien during
this phase and we need to be sure and attend those meetings. I guess it will
going to Planning Committee next with the site plan, layout of streets,etc.
Catherine also indicated it will then need to pass through Design Review and
then back to the council. So, there is more ahead but I think at least some of
the most important issues have been addressed and we have more protection now
than we did 6 monthes ago.
Anyway, thanks you speakers and lets all keep in touch and keep this thing on
the front burner with the City to let them know of our continuing concerns.
