October 22nd Update

Fort Sanders Stakeholders Update

Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday's special called Fort Sanders Stakeholder Meeting to discuss the draft Fort Sanders District Plan. The major outcome of this meeting was a request to table the Fort Sanders District Plan at Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC)indefinitely in order to allow stakeholders of varying perspectives to continue meeting and discussing ways to improve the neighborhood. This idea was supported by those in attendance and a request has been submitted to MPC to table the plan.
