Environmental Commission postpones Grove PUD
Friday, November 6, 2015 by Tyler Whitson
At the request of neighbors adjacent to the site of a proposed planned unit development called the Grove at Shoal Creek, the Environmental Commission postponed a public hearing on the plan’s environmental merits on Wednesday. The commission requested a staff briefing on the proposal at its next meeting on Nov. 18 and will consider the item on Dec. 16, despite attorney Jeff Howard’s statement that the developer, ARG Bull Creek LTD, agreed to a postponement only on the condition that the public hearing be set on Nov. 18. City staff has not yet made a recommendation on whether City Council should approve the planned unit development zoning request. Chuck Lesniak, environmental officer with the Watershed Protection Department, said that although the proposal has met the department’s standards for environmental superiority, there are other issues that must be sorted out.
