The new development that was called The Arbors is now known as The Pillars. The developer who was planning to build individual homes is no longer involved. The developer that is involved is planning on building the Senior Care Center. His work in The Cities is known as The Pillars.

Because of the changes mentioned above, the new plan had to be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The next step is for the city council to give final approval. This will occur on March 2nd at 6:30 at the City Council Meeting. I’m expecting that the council will unanimously approve the new development plan.

I was invited to meet with Mr. Ryan, who is the CEO of The Pillars on Monday prior to the council meeting. My emphasis with Mr. Ryan will be to request involvement in the landscaping aspect especially along the Lavaque Road.

I believe that our remaining responsibility will be to work closely with the developer to make sure that the landscaping enhances this property and benefits the neighborhood.
