Rezoning Update + Open House

Regular visitors to neighborhood meetings and this website are aware of the proposed rezoning adjacent to Ray's Splash Planet.  This week the petitioners, John Arciero and Vincent James, have shared a proposed update to their zoning plans (zip file).  The update incorporates new detail on phasing and several revised zoning notes (these have not yet appeared on the Planning Department site).  Please be aware that the petitioners will be available to answer questions on Wednesday, February 3rd, at Ray's Splash Planet from 7:00p to 8:00p. 
Please also be aware that CMS representatives have recently corrected the impression that the potential project would be a "public-private partnership" as once reported.  If the rezoning and land transaction are successful, CMS will not remain a development partner to the project (though CMS does still intend to receive 25,000sf of office space in consideration).
Please feel free to contact me or other board members with your thoughts, and stay tuned to third-ward.org for updates.
The petitioners also have requested that their website be shared: http://www.sycamoreatgateway.com/.  At the time of this posting the site has not been activated.
