After council members denied his application Sept. 12, Conger requested they reconsider their decision. The denial was based on concerns that the project would create a public hazard because it only has one way in and out, and Conger hadn’t offered a satisfactory secondary access point.
Conger proposes limiting the number of homes that could be built until a secondary road for emergency service vehicles and a new connection are developed.
City Council President Elaine Clegg said Tuesday that Conger’s new proposal warrants reconsideration.
Never miss a local story.
“While I’m not convinced that the proposal in the reconsideration letter gets us to a place that I can make a decision that public safety will be protected if we were to approve that many housing units going forward, I do believe it’s worthy at least of discussion,” Clegg said.
The Dec. 5 hearing is scheduled during the council’s regular meeting. That meeting is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on the third floor of City Hall, 150 N. Capitol Blvd. City planner Todd Tucker said it will be essentially a brand-new hearing, so any member of the public who wants to speak will be allowed to.
