MAY 21 - 25TH - Your Input is Crucial to Shape Mall Future
Hillsdale Mall has already asked Council for special considerations to develop their property, so it will be huge to participate to work toward a project to best benefit our community. Development going beyond Measure Y height/density limits would require a ballot measure. This could be a sticky situation for Hillsdale Mall if the Council couples it with an ask for extreme overdevelopment throughout the city. If voters don't like that any portion, they could reject the measure entirely, that would torpedo any proposed Hillsdale increases, too. So, we do have some leverage to help them find something workable. We recommend attending at least one of these three events to share your thoughts!
