Update: Aragon public hearing (postponed), and St. George Street townhomes
Aragon public hearing — postponed
The public hearing scheduled for Tuesday, April 12, 2016 has been postponed, and MCCA has been informed that the likely date will be two weeks later on Tuesday, April 26th. The reason for the postponement is unknown. The Tri-City News did not carry any ads for the public hearing this past week, as would normally be the case.
Twelve townhomes — 2824-2830 St. George Street
The Trillium Projects proposal for 12 townhomes on two current single family lots in the area of St. George, Hugh, and St. Andrews streets was approved at the Land Use Committee (LUC) meeting on April 5th to move forward to a regular council meeting, at which time it’s likely council will decide to approve a date for a public hearing.
There was not a great deal of public input, and feedback was mixed. A couple of people said the density was not high enough, while slightly more said 12 townhomes to replace two single family homes was too much, and the city must consider the impact on current infrastructure such as park space, and existing parking issues. The minutes are not yet available.
