We promised a podcast recap of tonight’s public hearing, and here it is, recorded right after the meeting at the Audelia Library. (The intercom voice telling patrons that the library will soon close is unmistakable.)

The podcast is chock full of good information, so make sure to listen. A couple of highlights: No, no grocers or tenants were named, but Lake Highlands Town Center developer Prescott Realty gave an update on construction timelines: Late 2013/early 2014 for completion of the first 200 apartments, and, if city council votes to apply for the HUD loan and it is approved fairly quickly, the first 165,000 square feet of retail (including the grocer anchor) will be finished in early 2014.
