NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A new, three story, 60,000 s.f. medical office building to house outpatient medical services is proposed. Parking facilities for 161 vehicles and landscaping improvements will be constructed with the new building. Five single-family residential structures, one duplex structure, and four commercial structures will be demolished. There are no critical areas on or near the project site, and the site is not located in the 100-year floodplain.
Public hearings are required for this project because more than 75 PM peak hour traffic trips are being generated by the proposed development. An open record public hearing will be held before the Hearing Examiner and the Hearing Examiner’s recommendation will be forwarded to the City Council who will make a decision on this project at a closed record public hearing.
