Bob notes that the total value estimated to purchase these properties is a good
deal lower than previous offers prior to the last appeal to the Growth
Management Board. Both the lot yield represented here, as compared with Bruce
Blackburn's estimated yield of 102 lots using R 9600 zoning, and value to
individual property owners is reduced substantially, in fact, in dollars, about
a third less than in the recent past.
Bob comments that the math does not work out for R 9600 zoning, thus the
preference, the work on this concept using R 7200. But the lot yield is low with
a great deal of open space provided so that there should be no fear of over
The important features are the traffic ingress and egress east into the county
which alleviates loading it on to 35th S.E. plus a large amount of protection for
the environment. Of course this is a concept and it does guarantee that all of
the property owners will go along with it but this would represent a great first
development under the new LID and hopefully something that the city would
embrace with potential help to see it come to fruition.
