North Hill Communities Local Area Plan (NHCLAP) and Guidebook for Great Communities go to public hearing and Council on March 22, 2021

The CHCA has been negotiating with administration for a series of amendments to the NHCLAP. Several amendments are being considered and we appreciate the efforts of the City. Even with these potential amendments, we believe that the NHCLAP does not meet the needs of our residents in its current draft. After considerable deliberation, the CHCA Board has passed the following motion: 

The Crescent Heights Community Association does not support the North Hill Communities Local Area Plan and on behalf of our residents we request that our community be removed from the plan until further changes and improvements can be made.

North Hill Communities Local Area Plan (NHCLAP) and Guidebook for Great Communities UPDATE Jan 29, 2021

Guidebook and NHCLAP revised documents were released on on January 4th, 2021. Please check: AND to see the revised plans.

After considerable deliberation, the CHCA has taken the position to NOT support the NHCLAP unless the following issues are addressed: community character; density; heritage; urban forest/public space, and a mobility plan. For more detail, please refer to the letter submitted (PDF Download below) to the Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development (PUD). Our objections to the Guidebook are associated with our concerns around the NHCLAP.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO GIVE YOUR FEEDBACK! The CHCA encourages all residents to get involved and review these important planning changes intended to be implemented in our community.
