Whole Foods Development Project on Albany Planning Commission

April 24, 2012 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

The next iteration of the “Whole Foods” project process is coming to Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) on April 24th. The developer will be asking P&Z to recommend approval of the project appropriate to this stage, which I believe regards certification of the Environmental Impact Report, approval of the Planned Unit Development, and approval of a Development Agreement.
