                Re:         UPDATE - Morelia Group Proposal for Crossroads Annex Lot


Ladies and Gentlemen,


At the Oakley Community Council (“OCC”) meeting on December 5, 2017, Chris Hildebrandt presented a proposed development for the Crossroads Church Annex site located at 3450 Madison Road (the “Site”).  The proposed development included (i) a day care facility with capacity for up to 250 children and 50 employees and (ii) retail spec building planned with two drive-throughs.  At the December 5th OCC meeting, numerous members of the OCC Board expressed concern that the Site is, or should be, included in Oakley’s Urban Overlay District, and the OCC Board voted to provide a letter of no objection regarding the retail portion of the proposed development, subject to compliance to the Urban Overlay District requirements. 


At the OCC meeting on January 2, 2018, Mr. Hildebrandt presented revisions to the proposed development for Site.  The day care facility was moved to front Madison Road, the drive-throughs were removed from the two retail spec buildings, and a drive-through coffee shop was added.  However, the retail spec buildings were not moved to front Madison Road, as OCC members had previously requested.  The OCC Board voted, with 9 in favor, 1 opposed and 1 abstained, to provide a letter of no objection regarding the day care facility only.  Citing the motion approved and letter of no objection from the OCC Board following the December 5th OCC meeting, the OCC Board took no action regarding the revised proposal for the retail spec buildings or the new drive-through coffee shop. 

By this letter, the OCC Board hereby states no objection to the proposed development of the day care facility on the Crossroads Church Annex lot presented to the OCC on January 2, 2018.

Thank you for your time and consideration. 


Best regards,


Evan Nolan

Vice President
