5.  REVISED Village Housing Project

The City Council voted against the proposed Village Student Housing Project as proposed in August of 2018. The Council members opposed to the proposed project indicated they would consider approval if the project included a mix of housing for students and others, among other conditions. The project owner has reconsidered its development plans and has modified the project to include both open market and student oriented development. The project has changed in other substantive ways, as well.

The City staff will be hosting a meeting to share the project changes, take in stakeholder insights, and discuss the process for reconsideration of the project. The meeting will be held:

January 30, 2019 | 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. | City Council Chamber | 736 F Street

While this is not a public hearing at the City Council, the meeting will be recorded and minutes taken to ensure the comments are appropriately reflected to the Council for its consideration. The video will be made available after the meeting for those who cannot make it. In addition to staff, the project owner will be at the meeting to answer questions.

The City Council will have the reconsideration on their February 6, 2019, Agenda. This will be a regular City Council meeting to take input on the decision to reconsider the project.

HISTORY:  The Village Student Housing Project was denied by the City Council at the August 29, 2018, continued hearing of by a split vote of two for and two abstaining and one absence.
