New housing development planned for commission review
The Planning Commission reviewed a proposal for a new housing development on Indian Hill Boulevard and Vista Drive, according to the city manager’s report.
Residents addressed the commission at its July 17 meeting with concerns and questions about the project, which included opposition to proposed changes in zoning to allow for additional units, concerns relating to design and how it connects with the existing neighborhood, issues relating to detached garages, concerns about the aesthetic value of a proposed solid wall on Indian Hill Boulevard, and questions about future parking on Vista Drive in the inlet just north of the proposed development.
Representatives from the Olson Company reportedly received a lot of good comments from both the neighbors and the commissioners on how to proceed with the project. Olson representatives assured the neighbors that the project was only in the very preliminary stages and that the group would be scheduling several neighborhood meetings to receive additional input as the project moves forward.
