Planners to question city staff members on Croman Mill site

In an effort to address Planning Commissioners' concerns about the city's Croman Mill plan, officials will discuss the proposal in depth on Tuesday.

Commissioners will have an opportunity to question city staff members about all aspects of the plan to rezone Ashland's largest piece of undeveloped land, which is located east of Tolman Creek Road.

Some commissioners have been critical of the plan and the way it has been crafted.

Staff members hope to take the commissioners' suggestions and refine the draft plan before submitting it in its entirety to the commission in October, said Bill Molnar, the city's Community Development Director.

"We've put together a draft package and we want to be able to do some fine tuning to it," he said.

The commission will likely hold two public meetings on the draft plan and then vote on whether to recommend that the City Council approve the proposal.

"Our general goal is to get this to the council before the end of the year," Molnar said.

The commission will also review proposed amendments to the city's meeting rules. The council will address the amendments at its Oct. 6 meeting.

The 7 p.m. Tuesday meeting will be held at in the Civic Center Council Chambers, 1175 E. Main St.
