Kite and Milhaus hosted a public meeting last week regarding their new proposed development at Glendale. If you weren’t able to attend, please see all of the details here.
There are many components to the project: updates to the current retail square footage (including the now-vacant Macy’s space), a residential addition, and several site changes. There will be more public meetings, as the developer needs rezoning (from C-4 to DP) and the lifting of an existing covenant preventing development on the existing parking lot.
Because of the location of the parcel, several neighborhoods will be holding public meetings. I will publish those as I hear they are occurring, so stay tuned for more opportunities to learn about the project and express your views.
So far I have received several emails in support of the project, as many residents aren’t happy that such an expansive and unused parking lot has occupied that land for so long. The website above gives you an opportunity for feedback, and I would recommend doing so after you are able to review the site plan. You are more than welcome to email me as well with your thoughts. Stay tuned. I’m told that the hearing with the City will be sometime in late July, and that neighborhood meetings will take place between now and then.
