The subdivision proposal on that site at 6536 24th SW (map) will be the subject of a Department of Planning and Development public-comment meeting requested by neighbors. The formal notice is out today for the 7 pm March 20th meeting at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW). We have reported three times previously about the proposal for this site, two parcels whose owner wants to split them into eight lots, with a proposal on the drawing board for a single-family home on each lot.
Longfellow Creek runs through the front yards of homes across 24th, and neighbors there have pointed out past flooding (see a photo in this WSB story from last month) and concerns about more runoff if the undeveloped site involved in this proposal is built on. They told us they had been working on a possible flood-control project which is as yet unfunded; the land owner’s documentation suggests that not-funded project might deal with runoff from his site.
