Planners may backtrack on Lightsey 2
Thursday, November 13, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
A flurry of Citizens Communications about the Lightsey 2 development in South Austin hit their mark at the specially called Planning Commission meeting Wednesday night. Commissioners Stephen Oliver and Nuria Zaragoza, who both voted in favor of the preliminary plan during the first go-round, indicated their wish to have the plan return on the next agenda. The request to rescind was based on the fact that a permit was expired, information that was not presented at the previous meeting. At the next meeting, set for Nov. 25, six commissioners will have to vote to rescind in order for the previous decision to be reversed. The Monitor will have a full story on Friday.
