We had big plans to attend last night’s design review for the 23rd & Union development, but a last minute scheduling snafu kept us from making it. (it’s been busy week – we’ve got big project launching tomorrow and things have been go-go-go here at the world headquarters)
But for those that did attend, use this as an open thread to tell everyone what you learned and what you thought about the development. And If you’ve got pictures or video of the event, upload them using the post menu above and we’ll attach them to this story.
Getting this project done will require city council action to allow the added height for the project. So if you’re a supporter, be sure to speak up and tell our city council members:
Sally Clark is the chair of the planning committee that will take up the rezone, so make sure she and the other committee members get your feedback too:
Update: Misty reports that she was told that councilmembers can’t consider your comments in rezoning cases:
Because this is a zoning change request, it is considered to be “quasi-judicial.” Councilmembers are not permitted to read emails or talk to people for or against any measure considered to be quasi-judicial. They are to limit their decision to the facts presented in the formal legislative process, much like judges in a court case. As such, Councilmember McIver cannot read or respond to your email.
