Riverview Capital Investments representatives Megan Norris and Bret Hogge met with more than 25 neighbors to discuss the McKinley Village/Lanatt development.
The developers presented no new plan, but did ask for feedback on how to make a previous plan better. Because of limited time, ESP framed the meeting as a “question session” and requested that Riverview research the questions and give us the answers at a later time.
ESP will publish the answers as soon as we receive them. Below are the questions. If you have any additional comments or questions, please forward them to ESP and we will direct them to the developer.
