Update on Wednesday’s P&Z Hearing

Thanks to everyone who came out to the meeting Wednesday night! We had a good showing of supporters and some great speakers who made rational, positive comments.  Though there was also a force of people speaking in opposition to both plans.

Unfortunately the Planning & Zoning Commission felt they hadn’t had a chance to fully digest the plans and weren’t ready to make a decision. Because of this, there will be another public hearing on Feb. 2nd, and once they (hopefully) make a decision at that meeting, the plans will move to City Council on February 22nd.

It is very important that P&Z and City Council hear that we are in support of these plans. You can copy and paste their addresses into your “To:” field to send them an email:

robert.cluck@arlingtontx.gov; mel.leblanc@arlingtontx.gov; sheri.capehart@arlingtontx.gov; robert.rivera@arlingtontx.gov; kathryn.wilemon@arlingtontx.gov; lana.wolff@arlingtontx.gov; robert.shepard@arlingtontx.gov; jimmy.bennett@arlingtontx.gov; gene.patrick@arlingtontx.gov; planningdevelopment@arlingtontx.gov
