  • June 22, 2016 - Capella Planned Area Development

    Neighborhood Meeting and Public Hearing Schedule

    Given the size of the Capella project, a customized neighborhood meeting process has been proposed by the applicant and approved by the Town. Following formal submittal and Town review of the rezoning application, a General Neighborhood Meeting will be held to introduce the application and discuss macro issues such as the overall site layout and traffic. Three (3) Focus Meetings will follow which are intended to provide a deeper dive into issues most important to specific areas and neighborhoods. Finally, a General Neighborhood Meeting will be held (if necessary) to summarize findings from previous meetings and address any remaining issues. Notices will be provided to all residents in the same notification boundary and all residents are invited to participate in any and all meetings.

    With regard to future public hearings, there will be a minimum of two before the Planning and Zoning Commission and one Town Council hearing.

    Please note neighborhood meeting and public hearing dates and times have not been established at this time. This information will be posted when available.
