It is amazing that they are considering building 3-story rowhouses next to 1-story homes. Unless the design is done really really well, that be so imposing. From what I know, it is not designed very well. They should build something else there. It's too many homes in a small space.

What happened to neighborhood preservation? This was a priority for many of the City Council members when they ran for office. Let's hope they haven't forgotten. This development will substantially alter the existing neighborhood. Let's get a nice development that is harmonious with the current and expected future neighborhood.

I have lived on Walker Drive for 20 years and would be saddened to see something as tall as three stories put in on this parcel. It does not fit into the neighborhood at all. Both the DRC and the Zoning Administrator recommend a no vote on this development - we can only hope the council takes their recommendation and votes no on Tuesday.
