Joint statement on County Square from County Council Chair Butch Kirven and Mayor Knox White

Following the success of last week’s charrette with Urban Design Associates, the City and County have agreed to defer council action on the application to rezone the County Square property in an effort to allow for additional planning. In the spirit of collaboration, both the City and County would like to process the feedback and take time to thoroughly review and address issues that are important to all of us, including the neighborhood residents, such as affordable housing, connectivity and scale. We are committed to being inclusive and transparent and look forward to working together to ensure the best possible development for this important area of the city. We anticipate being able to resolve any outstanding issues in the near future.
