Petition Summary:

 

The petitioner is proposing to construct a four-story, 71,662-square foot, 115 room hotel.  The site plan proposes a 115-space parking lot accessed via three curb cuts from Signature Boulevard. Four Class A bicycle spaces and 4 Class C (two for each building) will be provided. Storm water treatment for the site will consist of bioretention islands and underground storage.
