Councilman Peter Cunningham: On the Stevens rezoning plan
Dear friends and neighbors,
At our last City Council meeting, we were to vote on a final “master plan” as introduced by Stevens and approved by the City’s Planning Board. At my urging the City Council collectively felt the Community needed a better opportunity to hear and see the plan as introduced. Given the importance of this plan, like others the City Council has regularly hosted, a presentation to the Community at large provides for a better look and feel for these important large scale undertakings. And they are videotaped too. We hosted the same for the railyards and post office hotel project to name a few.
Thanks to Councilwomen Giattino and Fisher for their detailed communications to constituents and community meetings, concerns over “views” of the City and height around the edges of Steven’s campus were heard, and Stevens revised their plan – again.
Stevens and the Administration will present the revised plan at a special council meeting tonight, July 25 at 7pm, Council Chambers.
The agenda for the meeting will be:
1 .City and Stevens present and explain the process to date
2. Public comments
3. City and Stevens respond to public comments
4. Vote on University Zone ordinance for first reading
5. Presentation on Parking Utility Plan 21
Please pass on to your neighbors and friends, and let me know if you have any questions.
