Another Reprieve on City Place
As explained in an earlier post, the last configuration of City Place – a “by right” development purporting to be consistent with the current zoning of the site – was sent back to Planning Commission for technical reasons. Council directed that the PC should review it immediately and return the proposal to Council on July 20. Accordingly, the item appeared on next week’s agenda after an inconclusive review by PC (the vote was 5-1 to approve but 6 votes were required for approval).
Now, in yet another change of course, the developer, Alex de Parry has requested another postponement through a letter from his lawyer. The letter states that de Parry requests that the item be postponed till the first Council meeting in November. By then, however, he is hoping that a new PUD application will have moved through the planning process.
Many have speculated that a new PUD was de Parry’s true aim all along. He has already seen two such proposals rejected by Council and talks with the Germantown neighbors broke down some time ago. But apparently he is willing to believe that the third time can be the charm.Explore posts in the same categories: Neighborhoods
