NPP MEETING NOTICE 217 South Rendon St. 4/10 8am

Dear Neighbor:
217 S. Rendon LLC owns a Gymnasium and the vacant lot at the corner of S. Rendon and Cleveland Ave.
This building was heavily damaged during Hurricane Katrina. The building was previously owned by the Archdiocese and was in disrepair and remains damaged and uninhabitable. It has become a target for graffiti and vandalism.
The goal is to put this Gymnasium and the adjacent property into commerce by providing much needed housing with off street parking. This will be an Affordable Development and a tax paying entity. The plan is to build 24 units with 10% allocated for affordable housing. All the units are within the existing structure. The units range from 912 -1100 sq. ft.
This request is for: A Planned Development: “A conditional use to permit a planned development in an HU-RD2 District in accordance with Table 11-1 of the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.”(enclosed)
