  • Discussion of vacant board positions
  • RUN Garden (Monastery) and tree maintenance
  • Representative Pam DeLisso to speak about her upcoming town hall
  • Discussion of 6174 Ridge Ave and upcoming CDR process
  • 6174 Ridge Ave is the old Woolworth Building plus the High Pointe Cafe building and U.S. Post Office. This is near the corner of Ridge and Hermitage Streets. A by-right apartment building is planned for this location. It will have commercial on the ground floor, and more than 50 apartment units, which qualifies it for receiving a Civic Design Review (CDR). The CDR process requires a presentation to the affected RCOs. Unlike a variance, which offers RCOs the chance to support or oppose, this review will provide only the opportunity for public comment. This commentary is submitted to the CDR committee so they are aware of it. The CDR review will happen in the coming months. The CDR committee is comprised of professionals in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, building and development, and sustainability, and up to two seats on the Committee for the local Registered Community Organization representatives. These meetings are open to the public.
