BeltLine Master Planning Kick-Off
January 29, 2009
Study group sub area 1 kicked off their official BeltLine master planning process at Hammond’s House. The Westview neighborhood is encompassed in this sub area, which is in the southwest portion of the BeltLine corridor. In recent months small groups of neighbors have met to start the BeltLine planning movement. Today’s meeting was the first official BeltLine meeting and gave an overview of what the planning process will involve. Part of the presentation recommended for neighbors to get familiar with some of the zoning and planning language that will be used. Other parts of the presentation gave explanations of what kind of density would be required to support a light rail. The planning process will continue over a number of sessions throughout 2009 and the final master plan is anticipated to be adopted in early 2010.
