Despite a strong showing from Del Cerro residents, and solid testimony from a number of residents, on Thursday, September 14, the Planning Commission voted 5-0 to support the project. It is obvious the city’s interest for in-fill housing is a priority. The project meets the city’s requirements, and that is what the commissioners relied upon to justify their vote. To the commissioners, 24 homes is an insignificant impact on our community.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend the meeting and state their position in opposition before the Planning Commission.
The next, and final step, is the project will go before City Council. The date for City Council action has not been set. Now that it will be a docketed item for the City Council, you may contact the members of the City Council to state your position and encourage the councilmembers to vote against the project.
Jay Wilson, Secretary
Del Cerro Action Council
