We have property near 44th and Kipling. With the development of the existing SCL/Lutheran Hospital, this could be a once in a century opportunity to create a large “city park,” a large playground, a biking area for kids and teens, and open space with walking and bike trails in the heart of the city. Additionally, some low density housing would be good for the community. With the many new higher density condos/apartments on or near Wadsworth, all of these new residents will need areas to play. Crown Hill is crowded. At times, it is difficult to walk on the path with all of the bikes. A true hardship for individuals using canes, walkers, or wheelchairs. The last thing we need are more half rented apartment complexes and half empty strip malls. As elected representatives, please plan for 100 years from now. Additionally, don’t change surrounding streets. This pan needs to be an improvement to the lives of the current residents. And, which will also enhance the lives of future residents. Thank you.

I live at 32nd and Cody ct. and I would like to see the current master plan for the Lutheran Campus and a description of the proposed changes to that plan. I would like to know if any zoning changes are proposed, and how this will impact my neighborhood and the traffic through it. Ken Flees 11/2/20

I live on 32nd and Balsam. I would like additional green space to be included in an equal proportion to development on Lutherans site. I would like Balsam to remain a dead end st so that my kids have a least one non-busy st. To play on. I would like a mix-use low density development with an equal amount of green space to go in.

I also live at 32nd & Balsam St. and would like to preserve the retention pond on the south side of the West Pines facility as well as keep Balsam Street a DEAD END street. It would also be nice to have a new open space for us to play with our kids since the park at Crown Hill has seen a major increase of traffic. Thank you, Erika Bryant

I live at 32nd & Balsam Street. I ask that the Master Plan for the hospital area preserve the retention pond on the south side of the West Pines facility, and keep Balsam Street as a DEAD END street. Crown Hill Park is becoming extremely crowded, and a new park/open space for the area will be necessary. The West Pines open area (where the pond is) would be a welcome aspect to the Master Plan. Thank you, Lisa Wilson
