Corso Chevy Chase (7100 Connecticut Avenue) Redevelopment
Draft “Binding Elements” and Images
The Town Council, with assistance from the Town's 4-H Committee and legal counsel, has developed a proposed list of “Binding Elements” that the Town will propose as conditions for County approval of the developer’s rezoning application. These conditions include limitations on the scale of the development, restrictions on use (such as preserving the woods and limiting the amount of commercial space), and other requirements. Please review these, and we invite your comments. We also will be discussing this draft with the County Planning Department.
In early August, the Town received and publicized numerous three-dimensional images that show the height and massing of the proposed buildings from all adjacent streets, with and without vegetative cover.
September 10 “Walkinar”
The Town will host a “Walkinar” of the Corso property on September 10 at 10 a.m. (with a rain date of September 11 at 1 p.m.) to allow residents to understand the development plans and pose questions to the developers. Particular focus will be on the plans for forest conservation easements and the proposed storm water management system. Representatives from the County Planning Department also will attend. The event will start at the north side of the Corso property along Thornapple Street and proceed through the west and south sides of the property.
September 12 Town Forum
On September 12 at 7 p.m., the Town Council will host a Town Forum to receive resident feedback on the proposed redevelopment. The forum will be held in the Town Hall and by Zoom video conference.
We encourage residents to review the proposed binding elements and images and provide feedback to the Town Council at the Town Forum or at email@example.com. Following the receipt of resident feedback, the Council will finalize our proposed set of conditions to submit to the developer and the County Planning Department.
