Citizens concerned about Ashland Normal Neighborhood Plan
A group of concerned citizens voiced their opinions last week during a public hearing on the proposed Normal Neighborhood Plan in Ashland.
The plan, named because it includes residential neighborhoods in the area of Normal Avenue, would incorporate seven percent high density housing, 65 percent regular density housing and 28 percent of the land would be set aside for conservation.
Detractors of the proposal say the plan will harm the local environment, cause traffic snarls and further exacerbate the local drought issue.
A second public hearing will be held May 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Ashland Civic Center.
