Brightpointe Development Property Addresses Concerns

The Common Council met on Monday evening to hear changes in regards to the proposed housing development by Brightpoint and Keller Development.

Representatives from Keller Development converged on Monday night's Common Council meeting at City Hall. In previous meetings, local residents had addressed a number of concerns in opposition to development of the property at 907 South Wayne Street. Keller representatives, including Dawn Galloway, presented a new rendering which completely flips the orientation of the living/learning/working apartment community for artists and entrepreneuers. Concerns at prior meetings included property value, privacy, traffic, and others.

The new rendering featured a 154 foot wall instead of a 120 foot wall to ensure more privacy for homeowners. Landscaping around the exterior of the proposed community would allow for the planting of shrubbery and arbor vitae eliminate line of sight to adjacent homes and increase privacy.
An added parking lot to the south would cover the gap between the apartment community and homeowners, as well as alleviate entrance and exit traffic on Felicity Street, a major concern for local residents with a school nearby. A basketball court for residents and children alike is in the works for a central recreation area.

Brightpoint and Keller Development first proposed the property in June, which is funded by a large number of tax credits, with a smaller percentage due to donations. The motion was carried, and further discussion is planned at the next Common Council meeting on July 16.
