The Planning Commission meeting for the proposed development of 1576 Cherokee Road will be held on Thursday, April 19th. The meeting will be held at the Old Jail Building, 514 W. Liberty Street (at the corner of Sixth and Liberty). The meeting starts at 1 pm but there are a few other matters for the Planning Commission before 1576 Cherokee Road so we ask that you arrive by 2 pm.
The BHA's position on the proposed development is stated in the following BHA Board resolution passed in December 2017:
Because of the core elements of the 2002 Bonnycastle Neighborhood Plan, including that we maintain the character of the residential and commercial aspects of the neighborhood, that we recognize and preserve the distinct characteristics of the diverse sub neighborhoods in Bonnycastle, that we ensure the development of Cherokee Park continues and it remains open, clean and safe, and that we insist on, and monitor strict code enforcement, the Bonnycastle Homestead Association opposes any change in zoning, from R7 to R8a or other designation that would increase the density beyond the current R7 designation and we further oppose any height variance within the existing zoning for 1576 Cherokee Rd.
