In response to an appeal filed last spring by a small group of opponents after the Planning Commission approved the Village at Providence Point, a county circuit court judge sent the project back to the planning commission for further review. On January 11, the judge ruled that the Planning Commission did not include enough “independent reasoning” to explain its decision to approve the project.
This delay is disappointing after our group spent countless hours working with the City and National Lutheran over the last couple of years to perfect a plan that meets all of our concerns including our four major objections on traffic, stormwater, forest conservation, and future development. However, we are confident that the Commission’s updated ruling will ultimately stand. Please click here to read our initial statement in response to the appeal.
It is not immediately clear how long it will take for the project to come before the Planning Commission again, but we will continue to update you as we learn of the next steps.
