The Commission also got several updates on projects within the city. One of them is the 245 units planned for land along the Rivanna RIver within the floodplain. One of the meetings from the past I hope to document in more detail is the site plan conference for what’s known at the moment at 0 East High Street.
Missy Creasy, Deputy Director of the Neighborhood Development Services Department, wanted the Planning Commission to know what is going on.
“The applicant has submitted a by-right site plan so this site plan is in their opinion adhering to the regulations that are allowable in the code,” Creasy said.
Creasy said the site plan is being evaluated by staff and comments will be provided to the applicant by October 28.
“There are a number of concerns that have been raised by the community and there are technical concerns that we know are coming to pass as well,” Creasy said.
Creasy said this site plan might come before the city Planning Commission for their review, though the plan must be approved if it meets all of the technical requirements.
In the meantime, you can review the site plan conference yourself on the NDS website. Take a look here.
