The WBNA received notice February 18 of intent to build a small affordable housing complex on the five acre lot at the corner of Long Vista and Bratton Lane (across from Willow Bend Pool).
Everything is tentative at this point as they will not receive notice of approval or denial on funding before the end of July. Sale of the property is contingent upon approval.
The developers have expressed a desire to work with the community and have requested a neighborhood meeting so that they may answer any questions you may have. This meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, March 27, 7pm, at the Community Center.
I hope that each of you will bring your questions to the meeting along with a measure of restraint. Please remember that it only takes one NIMBYist comment to discredit our entire neighborhood. If approved, this development, its owners, and its residents will all be our neighbors. Bridges burned now, may be very difficult to repair down the road.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have prior to the meeting. I can be reached at 512-656-0654 or email@example.com.
