UPDATE 2023-08-02: The owner of the properties backed out of the meeting of the Creston Land Use committee scheduled for 2023-08-02. You can read 👉the letter from Copperrock Construction👈. In short, there is no plan to present. This is a textbook example of an outbreak of NIMBY Fever.

Can we declare ridership on the Amtrak 370/371 corridor - the Pere Marquette - to be recovered? 2022 ridership (89,539) exceeded that of 2017 (87,276).
The all time highest ridership year is 2018 with 96,643 riders, followed by 2019 with only a few hundred less.
Now we are back to ridership growth on the Pere Marquette being limited by capacity and frequency.

There are several very interesting developments on the agenda of February 23rds Planning Commission meeting. I'll use the first one to take a tour of three important concepts in Zoning & Planning: the PRD, Density, and Parking Requirement.
628 Coit NE
Update 2023-02-23: Tabled, due to massing and site design. The Planning Commission expressed no opposition to the density of parking.
Full Disclosure: I (the author) own a lot with a single unit on an block adjacent to this proposed development.
