Development: DPD streamlining process for construction of two three-story units

Comment period open through Feb. 13

Department of Planning and Development just put up a notice on their Land Use Bulletin about the construction of two side-by-side three-story townhouses. Parking will be made available on the bottom floor.

Looking at Google's street view, the townhouses will be built in the place of what looks to be a small single-family home at 1427 NW 60th St. On either side are two more three-story townhouses, so there is no danger of shadowing the adjacent lots. We'll try and get a picture up in the near future.

The director is preparing design guidance regarding the development and public comment will be accepted through Feb. 13. DPD says the public is "invited to offer comments regarding important site planning and design issues, which (the public believes) should be addressed in developing a design for this project." This will be the only opportunity to comment on the design.
