After a decade of battle over the development of Crystal Spring, revised filings by National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) have met the 4 major concerns of our group, Concerned Citizens for Proper Land Use, Inc. These concerns focused on traffic, forest conservation, stormwater management, and extinguishment of all development rights other than the senior community. These gains came after several years of work with NLCS and the City to resolve these issues and make this a model project. Planning & Zoning has incorporated these terms as conditions for approval of The Village at Providence Point and forwarded their approval recommendations to the Planning Commission (PC) which has the final say.
The PC will hold virtual hearings on December 16, January 6, and January 20, all at 7:00 p.m. Former Senator Winegrad, our President, will testify for our group on December 16. Click here to read the statement of CCPLU agreeing to withdraw objections if all our terms are adopted. Also, please click here to read the recent column by Senator Winegrad on this matter.
