On Feb. 25, the Fitchburg Common Council voted 6 – 2 in favor of submitting Urban Service Area Amendment Applications for the Northeast Neighborhood and the North Stoner Prairie Neighborhood to CARPC, the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission. Alders Steve Arnold and Dorothy Krause voted against the measure, and we thank them. The next step is for the CARPC to consider and vote on the applications, and we will be urging them to turn them down. The public hearing will likely happen on August 14, at the Fitchburg City Hall, though we don't know for sure yet. In the meantime, we'll continue to educate people about how harmful approving these applications would be.
