A new senior residence planned for N. Homewood Avenue will be the focus of two meetings being held in Homewood this month.
Councilman Ricky Burgess's executive assistant, Marita Bradley, said in an email that the meetings were scheduled at the request of the Zoning Board after a group of about 15 people expressed opposition to the senior residence planned for 524 N. Homewood Avenue in a hearing last week.
The meetings will be held on July 9th and July 16th at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA, at 7 pm on both days.
Councilman Burgess describes the senior residence as Phase 1 of Bridging the Busway, the transit-oriented development plan that was published a few weeks ago.
Ms. Bradley also said that two copies of the Bridging the Busway plan will be placed in the Homewood Carnegie Library for public use. She said that they should be there in a few days.
I asked her if the Councilman was charging for copies of the Bridging the Busway plan, as Lucille Prater-Holliday said in her comments to my last post about BTB. Here is her response:
"We are absolutely not charging anything for copies of the bridging the busway study. I have no idea where that came from and when I did speak with Ms. Prater-Holliday I mentioned that they were costly to print so there was a budgeted amount printed. We made the whole document available online to accommodate everyone. "
