Re: Westwood Tract – Union Presbyterian Seminary follow-up meeting

As a follow up to our various meetings with the neighborhood Task Force, the overall community meeting on August 4, 2014, and the numerous calls and comments we have received from the community, the Seminary would like to invite you to a working meeting with the Seminary on September 4, 2014 at 6:30 pm. The meeting will be held at the Lake Chapel located at the corner of Brook and Westwood (the same place as the August 4, 2014 community meeting).

We have heard a lot of comments and are working on some revisions to our proposal. We would like to share our progress with you and hear your further comments. Please note this is an open meeting and we would like to share our progress with everyone who is interested. This will not be as formal a presentation as the August 4, 2014 meeting but will be more of an open discussion to try to resolve outstanding issues and move forward with a plan that will at least attempt to address the concerns raised in our prior discussions.

Please note we have invited the neighborhood Task Force, anyone who signed into the meeting on August 4, 2014, and every homeowner across from the Westwood Tract, along Brook Road, Rennie Avenue, and Loxley Lane.
