On Monday, October 2, 2017, the Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association Land Use Committee met to discuss the proposed rezoning and variance requests for 4830 and 4839 College Ave.  After feedback from the neighborhood, the land use committee has asked for a continuance to allow for additional discussion and possible modifications to the proposal.  We expect the petitioner will return at the November committee meeting.  Please stay tuned to MKNA.ORG or updates and future meeting dates.

For more information on the proposal, please visit the original meeting announcement here.


One thought on “Land Use Update: 4830/4839 College Ave

  1. Dear MKNA Landuse Committee,
    Had you approved a sensible neighborhood scale project like what’s proposed for the 4900 block of College for the old ATT site, neighbors would be singing your praises instead of feeling sold out. The ATT site development you pushed through clearly does not belong in this neighborhood. City zoning code would have given wise guidance for scale had you not supported granting variances to undermine it. So, the 4900 block neighbors are getting a community asset, while those of us unfortunate enough to live beside your ATT site project are getting nothing but harm.

    When good planning sense isn’t obvious, your default should be following the wishes of the residents you’re supposed to be representing, and at least the spirit of the zoning rules. You did neither for the Milhaus project at the ATT site. This was a massive mistake. This 4900 block project is an example of reasonable infill development. Without your support for the oversized Milhaus mess, the ATT site might also have benefitted from this sort of appropriate and welcome project.
