DRC To Say NO to Wizers?

To All COLA LO Members,

In a potential defeat the Development Review Commission was about to say no to the proposed development of the Wizer's block.  It appears they are now granting a continuance for the developers to revise their plans.  Many in the community believe and modifications will not be sufficient because of the destiny of the project and its size.  Here are the latest details  Wizers Continuance?    

As more community groups oppose the project because of its size and "High Density"  others who are supporters of streetcar, foothills, and urbanizing Lake Oswego continue to provide articles supporting Wizers.

 The most recent one is by former city councilor Roger Hennagin    Legally The City Cant Deny.

At the same time the developer of Millennium Plaza came out against the project in a recent article :Design A Project That Fits.   That may have surprised many in the community as this project is often touted as adding value to the community and the urban renewal district.  

Its clear there is a strong ideological divide in the community.    Many are wondering how the City Council will vote once the project comes back to them for a final approval.  

It will be interesting to see how the project proceeds with such active opposition by the community and a council that was elected on a platform opposed to streetcar and high density development.  

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
