Please join us on Tuesday evening, September 11th at 7:30PM for our monthly meeting at the Harborview Health Center, 178 Ogden Ave at Franklin St - 1st Floor Cafeteria. You will have the opportunity to hear from the North District police department and from a representative of the Residence Response Center. 
The RNA Transportation Committee lead Roger Heitmann will be our guest to discuss and answer questions on the initiative to improve bus transportation in the Heights. He will also be asking residents to sign the "Better Bus Service in The Heights" petition. 

In addition, we'll be taking a member vote on the 520 Palisade Ave project that was presented at the July meeting. We will also be discussing several new development proposals such as 366 New York Ave and a development below the cliff near Harrison St and Hoboken Ave. 
All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
520 palisade
Member Vote on new 520 Palisade Ave plans 

New proposed plans for the 520 Palisade Ave (old firehouse) had been  presented at our July meeting by the new architect for the project, Lee Levine, and by the owner - Pronti Construction for questions and feedback from the community.  The previous plans that went to the zoning board last October were denied by the Zoning Board after significant opposition from the immediate neighbors. 

The new proposal is mixed use with Retail space(s) on the ground floor and dwelling units above. Plans presented have dwelling 20 units, retail on the ground floor, 6 stories with setbacks at the 2nd and 6th floors, a restored facade, and no parking.   

The RNA board asked for clarification from City Planning and the owner on why they thought a density variance was warranted (17 units is allowed) but we have not received a reply so we are assuming this project will go before the Zoning Board as presented. 

We will be asking members in good standing to vote on this project at the meeting. This is not a legal hearing on the development application, ultimately this project proposal will be heard before the Zoning Board of Adjustment (no date yet).
