December 2018 is the opening of the completely new Maverick store, interesting because it’s design and appearance were tested against the new General Plan. If fact, our Planning Commission sent their proposal back twice, each time requesting better fit with the General Plan.
Because of our Dark Skies ordinance, lighting is much more subdued than the usual Maverick. Because of our Signs ordinance, signage is also much subdued. When landscaping appears in spring, we will see an integrated trail and outdoor seating.
This is a pretty good example of how our General Plan is shaping ordinances to create the kind of community we want.
And kudos to the Maverick folk who chose to work with us, rather than against us. A win-win for all.
