Historic Germantown Organizes to Oppose 7th & Taylor Development

The Neighborhood Board of Historic Germantown, Inc. is encouraging its membership to oppose the designs of a proposed a development near Werthan Lofts at the corner of 7th Av. and Taylor St. According to Historic Germantown, neighbors who have seen the plans maintain that they are "not in keeping with the rest of the neighborhood."

The development plans have other strikes against them: the Planning Commission staff disapproved them and the Planning Commission voted against them after Metro Council passed them on first reading. Council passed the plans on second reading (which included a public hearing; was there public opposition at that time? I did not see that portion of the meeting), but on third reading they voted to defer and re-refer them to the Planning Commission. Even so, none of the requested changes have been made by the developer.
