Lincoya Hills Neighborhood Association Meeting

Lincoya Hills Neighborhood Association will have a second meeting on Saturday, July 16th from 10am-noon to discuss the same two topics.  The first is to review the traffic calming program recommendations with neighbors and talk about next steps after input from the last meeting.  The second topic is to further discuss the Contextual Overlay, which is the only tool in the toolbox that is available to protect the character of our mid-20th century neighborhoods. 

We learned from a member of the Planning Department last time, and it was requested that a team member from Codes be at the next meeting to address those specific related issues.  So, be sure to attend this meeting and spread the word to neighbors.  As stated before, I currently have no intentions of filing any bill to implement an Overlay for Lincoya Hills.  This is purely an educational meeting, and the neighborhood will need to further discuss if this is the direction they’d like to take or not.

Lakeland Drive, Emery Drive, Donelsonwood Drive and Fitzergerald Drive neighbors – If you haven’t signed the Traffic Calming Petition or have any questions, please contact me. As soon as 70% of neighbors sign the required petition, traffic calming can be installed on your streets. If you’re reading this and know of a neighbor who lives on one of those streets, please help reach out to them and make them aware of this process and to contact me with any questions.
