Jamestown Crossing’s two preliminary plats were deferred from tonight’s Planning Commission meeting by the developer, Dantin Bruce Development, which opted for April’s agenda. In a letter to Planning Director Jerome Fournier the developer wrote:
“Dantin Bruce Development, LLC, which is the applicant for two separate preliminary subdivision plat applications that are scheduled to be presented to the Planning Commission on March 14, 2018. The applications are designated as “Jamestown Crossing, Filing One” and “Jamestown Crossing, Filing Two.” We held a public meeting last night and would like additional time to address the concerns of the adjoining property owners. We respectfully request that both applications be deferred until the April Planning Commission meeting.”
Dantin Bruce did still have business before the commission on Wednesday.
The commission reversed course, approving Oak Grove Townhouses which the body denied 4-2 on November 8, 2018. By a 4-3 vote it was approved after the Parish Council, convened as the Planning Commission Appeals Board on February 15, sent the denied plat back to Planning for RECONSIDERATION. We’ll have the full story tomorrow morning but our five-day old prediction was pretty much spot on.
