Zoning Commission approves apartment proposal; CHPNA secures safegaurds
City Zoning Commissioners approved a 351 unit apartment complex with parking for 490 cars on a 15 acre vacant lot adjacent to Crownhill Park. City Council will be asked to vote its approval for the rezoning request in Mid-June.
Anticipating approval at both venues, CHPNA has secured protections for our neighborhood from the developer. The Board has engaged both Councilman Bravo and Courage to ensure critical safeguards, including upgreades for Jones-Maltsberger, will be in place before the complex opens.

Resident underwrites cost to mow medians.
CHP resident and local realtor Dex Densley has agreed to sponsor the cost of mowing the grassy median islands separating CHP from Jones-Maltsberger. Although the land is City property, CHPNA has provided landscaping support for decades using association funds.
In exchange for a donation of approximately $2000 per year, Densley will be allowed to place signs on the medians acknowledging the sponsorship by his RE/MAX Realty firm. Ads will also appear in the quarterly CHPNA newsletter.
"We're grateful to Dex for his generous support" says CHPNA President Kelly Reid Walls, "because caretaking these islands has historically taken a big bite out of annual budget. Now those funds can be put toward other neighborhood priorities."
CHPNA volunteers had attended to the medians using a riding mower purchased by the organization which had fallen into disrepair. Densley's sponsorship will enable hiring of a landscaping firm to do the work instead. Public Works also provides some infrequent mowing but CHPNA leaders have long felt that these prominent entrances to the neighborhood needed some extra attention.
