Neighbors are welcome this evening at the Park Branch Library at 1833 Page St. (between Cole and Shrader) to discuss the proposed construction of a five-unit residential building between Fulton, Masonic, Grove and Ashbury, according to an anonymous flyer.
The site, referenced as 1815 to 1823 Fulton (near Masonic), is a back lot accessible only through a three-foot walkway.
The city has no outstanding building permits on file for the site. The authors of the flyer refer to the meeting as a pre-application forum, as required by city planning.
And though the meeting is public, and hosted by the sponsor, authors of the flyer are clearly against the plan:
"IF THIS PROJECT GOES THROUGH:
You will lose some value of your property.
This proposal does not include parking for its tenants.
You will lose your privacy and there will be lots of noise.
FIRE SAFETY CONCERN—NO DIRECT ACCESS TO STREET."
According to the Planning Department, pre-application meetings are a "mandatory form of community outreach" designed to "initiate neighbor communication and identify issues and concerns early on."
