City planners seeking feedback on Oread Neighborhood Plan

City planners are looking for the public's help in determining the future of the look and feel of the Oread neighborhood.

January 22, 2009


City planners are seeking input on a new neighborhood plan for the Oread Neighborhood.

The planning department will be hosting a public meeting from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt.

Planners are seeking feedback on strengths, weaknesses, issues and opportunities facing the neighborhood.

The neighborhood plan will serve as a guide for future development and redevelopment of the neighborhood. The existing plan for the neighborhood was approved in 1979.

I thought we were plowing it under for the new hotel/commercial district?

If property owners don't want to get hosed by the ONA, they better get involved! Same thing with the rental registration proposal. It's time to get involved if you want to save your investment. Call upon your city commisioners and let them know where you stand. NO to rental registration and NO to any further restrictions by the ONA.

It's time to dissolve the ONA, I motion, does anyone second?Their a minority special interest group that need to go. They don't represent the district and its diversity of property owners and have in the past push their own personal agenda at city hall with little resistance. Their needs to be another membership group formed of investor property owners and single family property owners that does not want to share the same organizations with Marci F. and the Pilgrims from Hell.Whats the plan anyway, I can't find anything in writing about the "New Plan", anywhere on the cities website "webmasters".It talks about the new plan but there are no clear statements about anything as to what the new plan is about.The ONA needs to go, lets put it if front of the commission for a formal vote to form a consent to formalize a vote to dissolve the ONA from representing the so call Oread district.We really don't need an association of minority interest representing the district. Each property owner can represent themselves at city hall. The ONA is a minority special interest group who wants to force their will on the whole district and the district does not need the ONA. I motion to get rid of them does anyone second?
