Out of those recent discussions, five issues of mutual interest to residents and the developer were identified:
(1) Retail space
(2) Parking on the site
(4) School capacity
(5) Overall design, layout, and land use
A CCFRC representative spoke about the parking issue before the Mayor and Council Monday evening. He said loss of the ample surface parking currently on the Rockshire Center site would create problems for the adjacent Korean Presbyterian Church next door on Hurley Avenue. The church has a very small parking area, and has relied for years on the shopping center for overflow parking.
Wooton High School students are also currently able to utilize some of the spaces at the shopping center. Should a future development there have limited parking, this would understandably create parking issues for the surrounding area.
The shopping center is located at the intersection of Wooton Parkway and Hurley Avenue.
