City Council Concerned That Initially Approved Development Site Plans Change Significantly

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

City Council members said they are concerned that development plans approved at the Planning Commission level may significantly change when it comes to starting construction.

Councilman Darrin Ledford said that has been a problem in several recent cases.

He said neighbors have seen the original site plan and then later find out something else is going in.

"They feel like it is false advertising," he said.

Councilman Russell Gilbert said, "If developers say they are going to do one thing, then they should do it."

Councilman Ledford said one way to deal with the issue is to place a number of conditions on the project.

Councilwoman Carol Berz said in the future on all projects in her district she is going to tie conditions to what is shown in the original site plan.
