Bristol Place Master Plan Presentation to the Housing Authority of Champaign County (HACC)

The draft Bristol Place Master Plan was presented to the Housing Authority of Champaign County board members and the public on April 24, 2014 during the regular HACC Board of Commissioners meeting.  Rob Kowalski and Kerri Spear led the discussion.  The neighborhood design with the variety of housing styles, park enhancements, and street layout were discussed. The topic of density was discussed also. Density was defined and examples were given of what constituted high, medium, and low density neighborhoods.  The new Bristol Place neighborhood would have a density level very similar to Douglass Square and less than the density of current Housing Authority developments planned for Champaign.  The attendees were informed that this Master Plan would be brought before City Council at the May 27, 2014 Study Session.  Comments from the board were generally positive and no one from the public offered comments.
