Planners to discuss Croman site

In their first meeting since they walked the 60 acres of land last month, Planning Commissioners will discuss how to create zoning requirements for Ashland's Croman Mill site Tuesday.

Located east of Tolman Creek Road, the Croman Mill property is the largest piece of undeveloped land in the city.

Beginning May 26, commissioners will work on plans for the site at their second meeting every month for six to nine months, said Maria Harris, the city's planning manager.

At the 7 p.m. Tuesday meeting in the Civic Center, the commissioners will discuss their next steps in shaping what could be built on the property.

Commissioners will be creating land use rules for the property on the basis of recommendations from the City Council. City Councilors decided that the plans should allow for the creation of business offices, a new street system and a park.

Also at the meeting, commissioners will vote on whether to approve final plans to divide 4.6 acres on Strawberry Lane into six plots, five of them with houses. The commission discussed the proposal in depth last month.
