Approximately 25 people attended a meeting in White Rock earlier this week to get a glimpse of the newest master plan options for the A-19 development.
“I think overall people are very engaged, and they want to see something happen,” said Housing and Special Projects Manager Paul Andrus. “I think they were very curious about the process, both the county’s planning and approval process but also what the stages of the development are expected to be.”
Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, the consultant charged with developing the A-19-a master planning study, presented two options for consideration. The major difference between concepts is in the design for the commercial area of the mixed-use development.
An open plaza concept has more space between buildings and would provide more visibility into the plaza from N.M. 4. The idea was to give a very visible, destination feeling for those driving by on the highway. The concept received little public support.
The more intimate internal plaza concept found several supporters. Many believe having the plaza protected by buildings in close proximity to each other would buffer noise from the highway and lend itself better to outdoor dining, concerts and other activities.
