A proposal has been made for the City to approve a subdivision on West Capitol Street and roughly 600 North. The Neighborhood Council has been asked to provide comment regarding the proposal. We must provide comment by August 9, 2015 in order to meet the requirements of the planning process.

A special meeting has been set for individuals immediately surrounding the affected parcel and other members of the Council to hear from the representatives of the developer and City planning staff and for neighbors to ask questions, make suggestions, etc. We will then, as a Council, follow up with providing comment to the City.
