Allandale came up short at Tuesday night’s Planning Commission meeting when they took up our Vertical Mixed Use (VMU) recommendations for the North Loop property. Allandale’s VMU application is not scheduled to go before the Planning Commission until late March however, due to staff error, the North Loop tract was included in Rosedale’s borders for VMU consideration.

Allandale was represented by Paulette Kern, Zoning and Planning Chair,
Allan McMurtry, VP Allandale Neighborhood Association, and Steven
Zettner, co-chair of the Allandale VMU Committee. Others in attendance
from Allandale included Anne Young, Kerry Kimbrough and myself.
