The Dalles Planning Commission decided to continue a public hearing on a proposal to subdivide a 6.2 acre lot west of Richmond Street into 72 lots for a housing development. An application for the project was approved by the City on the land that is zoned for high-density residential, but brought an appeal from neighbors who don’t believe it’s appropriate for the area in the east portion of The Dalles. The continuance was for further evaluation of a required traffic impact study submitted by applicant Legacy Development earlier this week. Some of the neighbors who testified during the hearing and had seen the study felt it was not comprehensive enough. The hearing was continued to a virtual Planning Commission meeting on June 18 at 6 p.m., and the record has been held open.
