9076 Holman Road Development Applies For Master Use Permit

The developers of the scheduled 9076 Holman Road project are applying for a Master Use Permit for their project. Over 30 neighborhood residents attended the Early Design Guidance hearings for the project in 2007 and 2008. Concerns were expressed about design elements, the facade facing Holman, parking, driveways, traffic, noise, etc.  Many of those concerns were incorporated into the instructions to the developer from the guidance committee, and addressed in subsequent iterations of the proposal. The project received a go-ahead to apply for a Master Use Permit at the second EDG meeting.

  1. This seems out of scale compared to everything else in the neighborhood. Maybe it’s a good thing though as it shields the neighborhood behind from street noise from Holman, but since it’s mostly to the north, doesn’t block sunlight.
