The developer of the 5/3 Bank site on Murphy Road is seeking a zoning change to build a proposed 378,700 square foot efficiency hotel, office and retail project (that is ¾ the size of the Pinnacle Tower downtown). We are pleased to announce that with the support of our council member Kathleen Murphy, the council hearing to consider the zoning change has been deferred until Tuesday, April 2nd. This delay gives the community, and our neighborhood, time to work with the developer to the extent they are willing or work to oppose the zoning change. PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND THIS COUNCIL HEARING ON April 2nd! Additional details to come.
URGENT - 3415 Murphy Road Development Community Meeting Tomorrow, February 20
As a followup to their January 28 meeting, GBT Realty, the developer of the project, will respond to further community questions at an additional meeting tomorrow night, February 20 at 6 p.m. at West End Synagogue.
While we would have liked to have had more time to alert the rest of the neighborhood to this event, the RWENA board was only made are of it today.
Please make plans to attend and have your voice heard. West End Synagogue is at 3810 West End Avenue; there is parking immediately adjacent to and behind the building.
Yielding to concerns and united opposition from the surrounding neighborhoods, the developer of 3425 Murphy Road, GBT, announced a revised plan for the property. The newest proposal is smaller in both height and bulk than their original. The mixed-use combination has also been changed to hotel, retail, and residential instead of office, as previously proposed. Council-members Kindall, Allen, and Murphy have coordinated this Community Meeting for neighbors to learn about the new proposal from the developer and ask questions directly.
The RWENA Board of Directors will consider its position after the Community Meeting. It is important to attend this community meeting to learn more, ask questions, and communicate with other neighbors and the developer.
Enter the school from the parking lot off of Bowling Ave, near the soccer/football fields.

Most every fall we have a neighborhood tree sale. Neighbors place tree orders through RWENA, and the neighborhood purchases the trees from a nursery in McMinnville. If you offer to purchase a tree for a public area, RWENA will sell it to you for half price. Complete the order form and mail it with your check by 11/1/17 to place your order. Trees will be delivered to neighbor's yards and public spaces on 11/17/17. See the October newsletter for more information.
