Skeers Construction, Inc. and Land Development Engineering and Surveying, Inc. will host an informal public meeting on the Mott’s Hill Overlook project in east Blaine. The meeting will be held by Zoom on Wednesday, October 20 from 6 to 7 p.m.
The developer and engineer will discuss a Planned Unit Development (PUD) and preliminary plat for a 16-acre property north of H Street, east of Terrace Avenue and south of E Street. The preliminary plan would develop 54 single-family homes on currently forested land with 2.5 acres of open space. Thirty-three homes would be built in the development’s first phase and 21 homes in the second phase.
The project would include the construction of a new road called Mott’s Hill Parkway. A 10-foot wide pedestrian trail would also go through the neighborhood. City utilities are located adjacent to the project site, according to the developer. Blaine Municipal Code requires a 20-foot buffer east and west of the development. Mott’s Hill is included in the East Blaine Infrastructure Plan.
“The purpose of the meeting is to provide early and informal notification to the public, to generate discussion, and make the proponent aware of community concerns relative to the proposed project,” according to the city of Blaine’s website. “It is intended to provide a means by which the applicant, staff, and the public are able to work together in a productive and creative manner. However, options and issues raised may not be all-inclusive and no decisions or guarantees on the project design or outcome are made.”
