Meeting #29 - The City's Position on the Little Mountain Plan.
This is the Full Meeting
(all of which is worth watching)
In this significant meeting, the planning department outlines their support and criticisms of the Holborn Concept.
The Advisory Group compliments the planning department on their work, but finds that although the planning departments criticisms are many and good, their overall density of the site is unworkable at their suggested range of 2.3FSR to 2.5FSR.
The Committee suggests that the maximum density be pegged at 2.3 FSR, a number which the independent economic analysis cited (Coriolis Analysis in Meeting #23) as the density where the community gets its amenities and the developer makes his profit.
After considerable discussion it becomes clear that there will be 3 different presentations that go to council:
One by the Planning department,
One by the Holborn Group,
One by the Advisory Group.
But there is a considerable amount of finessing to take place, so it is unclear what the city's final position will look like.
