The Summit Hill Association (SHA) provides notice of this hearing so that you have the opportunity to attend or comment on the following matters:
This hearing has been called in response to the following request:
The organizers of the North Star Grand Prix, a 5-day professional bicycle race, have been looking for a new venue, and are considering Grand Avenue for their opening night on Wednesday, June 14. The race would use a one-mile loop on and around Grand Avenue including blocks between Victoria and St. Albans on Grand and Lincoln Avenues. Besides the pro races, the event brings a festival atmosphere, with expos, food, and a free kid’s race. Visitors and residents at the Grand Prix events line the streets, throw block parties, and gather in their yards to watch Olympic-caliber racers flash by just a few feet away. Does this sound like a good fit for Grand Ave? Let us know your thoughts! For more information visit www.northstargrandprix.com. A full copy of this application and details can be found on the SHA website at www.summithillassociation.org.
The SHA Zoning and Land Use Committee will review and make neighborhood recommendations to the City regarding these application. You are invited to attend the hearing or submit written comments by February 21, 2017 at 5 p.m. Comments must be received prior to the meeting and sent to SHA at the above address or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 651-222-1222.
