April 2024 Alley Clean-Up

The first weekend in April is the Annual April Alley Clean-Up. Since Bulk Trash pickup for Northwood Hills begins Monday, April 8, this is the perfect opportunity to tend to your alley and dispose of any brush or debris you clear out. Each homeowner is responsible for maintaining the area from their back property line to the center of the alley. That includes trimming bushes so they don't scrape cars or obstruct the alley. Trees that overhang the alley are required to be trimmed up 15 feet to allow clearance for garbage collection trucks. If trucks have to maneuver to avoid your branches, trash, or other debris, chances are they will cause damage to your alley in the process! Let's keep it clean.

Pepper Square Redevelopment Update 3

Neighborhood leaders recently met with property owner Greg Miller, representatives from Masterplan (consulting firm), D11 Plan Commissioner Brandy Treadway, and D11 Council Member Jaynie Schultz to discuss the status of the rezoning request for the northeast corner of Belt Line & Preston Roads, referred to as Pepper Square. The seemingly final proposal presented for feedback included many of the same aspects as prior proposals we've seen, with some variation in building height this time. To review the presentation, please click here. Essentially, the rezoning request is seeking approval for a mixed-use development to be built over the next 10 years that would include retail and/or restaurant options on the main floor and residential units above them. It would be built in 3 phases, with a 2 acre publicly-accessible park to be included in the first phase. If full allowable build-out is achieved, there would potentially be 1,550 residential units on the site, most likely all rental units, but possibly some owner-occupied units depending on market demand at the time future phases are started. The renderings in the presentation linked earlier show two options the property owner is considering. One would involve a 5-story building and the park, followed by a 12-story [...]

Pepper Square Redevelopment Update 2

  Neighborhood leaders from NHHA, Prestonwood Trail, and Woodbriar had a meeting with Greg Miller, Masterpan, and Council Member Jaynie Schultz in late October. The HOA leaders again reiterated that the majority of our residents are not happy with the latest proposal set forward for Pepper Square and are seeking a redevelopment that includes less height and less density. Miller and Masterplan have made it clear that there's a minimum amount of height and density necessary in order to justify the cost of redevelopment, especially if including a 2 acre park. We understand the developer has a profit motive, but HOA leaders charged them with reworking their proposal to include shorter towers, which in turn would reduce the number of residential units, in hopes of getting closer to the minimum. Basically, feedback from our residents has shown that we want to see a plan that revitalizes Pepper Square without overcrowding that corner, straining city resources, and drastically changing the landscape of our surrounding area. We are currently waiting on a revised proposal from Miller and Masterplan. Once received, we will share with residents so you can review, provide feedback, and we can discuss next steps. As of now, there is no [...]

Pepper Square Redevelopment Update

Many community meetings have been held since 2022 regarding the proposed rezoning of the Pepper Square site at the southeast corner of Belt Line and Preston Rd. If you have not been able to attend any of them, we urge you to get acquainted NOW with what is being proposed. The zoning request will likely make it in front of the City Plan Commission before the end of the year. A rezoning of that site has the potential to dramatically change our area. Neighborhood input is required to bring about modifications to the development plan that allow for the revitalization of the shopping center without overwhelming our neighborhood. We have the potential to enact PD (planned development) conditions at the time of a zoning change approval that would implement restrictions on top of what's allowed by right. Below is a brief recap of the latest proposal presented by Masterplan, on behalf of Henry S. Miller: The developer is requesting a change in zoning from CR (Community Retail) to MU2 (Multi-Use 2) at the Pepper Square Shopping Center. Multi-Use development allows options such as retail stores or services on the lower floor, and apartments, condos, or offices above them. The height [...]
