PUBLIC HEARING - Monday, May 11 regarding Maryland School Townhouses

(* This message is shared from an email sent by Jennifer Taussig on behalf of Protect Clayton Neighborhoods)

Dear Neighbors and Friends,

The Architectural Review Board and Planning & Zoning Commission have given notice of a PUBLIC HEARING next Monday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the 2nd floor Council Chambers of Clayton City Hall, 10 North Bemiston Avenue, to consider the following applications:

"7501 Maryland Avenue & 7500-7520 Westmoreland Avenue
Lots 3-7 and part of Lot 8, Block 4 of Hanley Place, Plat Book 9 Page 49 and a parcel in Section 10, Township 45 North Range 6 east

Rezoning the subject properties from R-2 Single Family Dwelling District to R-4 Low Density Multiple Family Dwelling District, rezoning the subject properties to a Planned Unit Development (PUD) District, and to consider the terms and conditions of the PUD if the properties are rezoned.  The proposed PUD would permit the construction of 35 townhomes, 70 underground parking spaces, and a new private street."

Plans for the proposed project can be viewed on the City's website at

PLEASE -- this is a CRITICAL time for our neighborhood.  This application for rezoning is in DIRECT CONFLICT with the current master plan for this area.  This property is NOT a "transition" area between Westmoreland, Maryland and Forsyth.

We need as many neighbors and friends -- from our neighborhood and across Clayton to let the Planning & Zoning Commission know that ZONING MATTERS!   This may be a long meeting.  Many of us have kids to shuttle around, homework to oversee and bedtimes to meet . . . please come when you can and stay as long as possible.    

Please forward to your friends and families who live in other Clayton neighborhoods.  This is about RE-ZONING in a single-family residential neighborhood.

Thank you,
