Thanks to Marie for the transcription of the SoundCloud audio, this is great for those who don't have the time to listen: Sept 19th Proposed Forsythia Subdivision (Partial Transcription)

Working on a way to get an alert for any public notices related to the site, 3257 W. Hill Road, there's two services online you can check:

Earlier this evening I received an email from Dave Powell to relay. It sounds like the original timeline could be slightly delayed for them to possibly review and revise their proposal.

After last night's meeting we continue to look at ways to make the project compatible with the neighborhood, but also being a viable development. No promises yet, but we are reviewing. With this in mind, we spoke last night of November hearings. Based on meeting and continuing our evaluation, we will be postponing submittal of the application until at least October cutoff, which will delay hearings by a month. As I gain information and our development team takes final shape, I will let you know and you can inform the neighbors.

Will continue to update here and on the email list (sign up below if I missed you). Let's still watch the paper and if you hear any other news feel free to pass it on to me at mike.wabst@gmail.com

Hello neighbors,

September 11th, 2017 neighbors within 300 ft. of 3257 W. Hill Rd. received a notice of a city-required proposal meeting. It was held on-site September 19th for the proposed "Forsythia Subdivision" by a representative of the engineer, RiveRidge Engineering, Dave Powell.

NOTICE: Please sign up for the email list as many who attended the proposal meeting didn't provide their email addreses (will work on calling around in coming week).

For those who were unable to attend, here's an audio recording of the meeting (working on getting this into notes):

Highly recommend signing up for NextDoor to keep updated about neighborhood matters, will cross-post any information there as well.

If you can walk around and post a few flyers or posters, please download and print (or maybe have a poster made up for your street if you can afford the time/expense):
