Second Work Session on Proposed West Quadrant Plan on December 9

On December 9, 2014, the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) will hold a second work session on the West Quadrant Plan Proposed Draft.

At the first work session, commissioners identified the issues of affordable housing and maximum building height allowances at the Morrison bridgehead as needing further discussion.

Drawing of potential development scenario at the Morrison BridgheadSupporting documents for the December 9 session can be found in the Documents Section of the project website. The packet includes material on housing and bridgehead heights, as well as additional information requested by the PSC related to West End building heights. It also contains a detailed list of proposed revisions to the Proposed Draft released in August.  

Staff from various City bureaus will be available to answer any remaining questions about the Proposed Draft before the commission votes to recommend the plan (with revisions) to City Council for consideration.

The December 9 work session is open to the public, but public testimony will not be taken. Approximately 100 pieces of written testimony were received by staff prior to the closing of the public comment period on October 1, 2014 and forwarded to commissioners. There will be additional opportunities for public comment when the West Quadrant Plan Recommended Draft goes before City Council early next year.
