Public Meeting: Preliminary Plans
The City had a public meeting on Thursday, July 12 at the Laurel Hills Community Center to discuss the preliminary plans for the Blue Ridge Road Widening Project.
The public meeting began with a short presentation after which the design consultant and City staff were on hand to answer questions and receive comments from the surrounding community.
The City received comments from residents, property owners, and commuters after the public meeting. The comments and the City’s responses are provided below.
The City will hold another public meeting this spring to show the public the latest design plans and explain some of the revisions that were made to accommodate many of the concerns of the public during the first public meeting.
