The co-op’s Design Review Committee approval has been appealed by three Mill Pond residents. We will go before the City Council on July 30th at 6 p.m. at Astoria City Hall. The approval process has proved to be more challenging than anticipated. However, the greater Astoria community continues to provide us with enduring support.
We remain confident that the perceived negative impact to these individuals is vastly outweighed by the benefits the co-op brings to both them and the community at-large.
We will provide further updates as the hearing approaches. It will be imperative that the City Councilors and the Mayor hear from you urging them to vote to uphold the sound decision made by the Design Review Committee. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with further questions or concerns.
