City Staff Respond to Revised Woodbine Plan
Please see below for additional details regarding the most recent Woodbine discussions.
On June 26, 2014, a small group of neighbors representing the Taylor Run Citizens' Association (TRCA) met with members of the Planning and Zoning Office at city hall to discuss a June 13, 2014 Concept Proposal submitted by King Street, LLC., the group representing the developers for the Woodbine property. The most recent plan makes changes to the proposed building but still does not fit with the neighborhood. TRCA remains strongly opposed to the rezoning of the 1.3 acre lot located at 2811 King Street. It is currently zoned for residential development (R8) and the surrounding neighbors are unanimous in their belief that it should remain so. The RB zoning designation that the developer now requests is for “nonresidential uses of a noncommercial nature" (municode 3-701).
The TRCA holds a general membership meeting each fall and spring at the George Washington National Masonic Memorial. Meetings usually last between one and two hours. The Executive Committee meets monthly with the exception of June, July and August, as well as, November and December.
The membership year runs from January 1 through December 31, and the annual dues are $15 per household. The TRCA utilizes these dues for several purposes, including funding scholarships, the neighborhood fall party, National Night Out, and Earth Day event(s). Dues also are used to pay for printing the newsletters, special events, and maintenance of the TRCA website.
