UPDATE regarding Proposed Norris Drive Apartment Buildings at Cobbs Hill Village
Over 100 individuals and groups sent correspondence to the Planning and Zoning Department voicing their opposition to the proposal. Neighbors collected 422 signatures of opposition. UMNA, the Sierra Club and Friends of Washington Grove held a press conference to alert the media of the strong opposition. We were heard! Our thanks to EVERYONE that sent an email, wrote a letter, encouraged a friend or neighbor to follow suit, carried a petition… It does take a village, an active, willing to be involved village! As you have likely seen in the news, we have received notice from the Mayor that she has withdrawn her support of the current proposal and the initial proposal was denied site approval.
We, along with other interested parties expect to meet with the developer in the next few weeks to discuss. Stay tuned.
UMNA President, Chris Stevens
