Pope & Land Update

Serenade Residents:
     Pope & Land Development Update! The Planning Commission meeting was a very late one last night lasting till 11pm and I want to thank the few Serenade Residents who showed up. For anyone that has been against this project from day one, you got good news last night with the fact that Planning Commission denied this project in a 6-1 vote mainly due to the fact that it has a very low commercial aspect. The Planning Commission was happy to see the developer made concessions for Serenade, but the Planning Commission in January asked them to increase commercial especially since this piece of property is one of the last long main street frontage left. The city has approved high density residential over and over in recent years, but they are wanting to see more mix of commercial. This case is not over though. The Case still goes to City Council on March 25th and could be approved by City Councial even though Planning Commission denied the application. We will be allowed to speak in Public Comment at the March 25th meeting. If you are against this development and increased traffic, you can not stop showing up at these events. I am thankful for the few Serenade Residents who did show up last night as the Planning Commission did let us speak. I will create a new Event Invite ad keep everyone posted about the next meeting. Feel free to email serenade.hoa.president@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Pope and Land Development Meeting Tonight

Serenade Residents: Thank you to everyone who came out out to the HOA Annual Meeting last night. We briefly heard Pope and Land at the HOA Meeting, but tonight they are just going to be presenting to Serenade Residents and will have more time for questions. I am begging as many residents to please show up. The developer has basically decided to not consider one of our concerns!!! It is important we voice our concerns at this meeting so they can’t go in front of Planning Commission meeting on March 7th and say that none of us showed up with worries. The arrogance of this Developer is astonishing that they want to ram this project through the Planning Commission and City Council without making any adjustments based on neighborhood feedback. Please Please show up tonight if you can!!

Thank you!

Serenade President
