Chevy Chase Lake Presentation, Public Hearing Proposed for October 18

Below is a message from Planning Department staff concerning Chevy Chase Lake, including additional information about the staff recommendation.  Staff has proposed that the Planning Board hold a public hearing on October 18th during which interested citizens may voice their comments concerning the staff draft and the future of Chevy Chase Lake.

From Planning Department staff:

On July 16, 2012, after our presentation of the Staff Draft of the Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan, the Planning Board requested additional information and analyses prior to setting a Public Hearing.  Staff will be presenting that information to the Planning Board at a worksession on Thursday, September 6, 2012. 

The worksession is Item 7 on the Board’s September 6 agenda:

The worksession is slated to begin at approximately 3:00.  The meeting is open to the public, but no public comment will be taken.

You may download the staff report containing the additional information and analyses from the Planning Board agenda page today, or from the Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan page beginning Friday, August 31.

Attachment 3 to the staff report includes comments we have received since the July 16, 2012, meeting.  Comments received after the staff report was posted online will be forwarded directly to the Chair’s office and distributed to the Planning Board.

 On September 6, we will be requesting that the Planning Board set a Public Hearing for October 18, 2012.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
