ASHLAND, Ore. — Ashland City Council is another step closer to making a decision about what to do with the land surrounding Normal Avenue.

The nearly 100 acres being discussed is located between East Main Street between Clay Street and Walker Avenue.

Ashland officials say the area will not change drastically for several years, but the planning division has a proposal in place on how this land should be used, and the community wants to make sure their opinions are heard.

Some of the main concerns of community members are traffic issues, preservation of wetlands, and residential construction.

The Normal Ave. land is part of the Urban Growth Boundary that the city says will inevitably be developed at some point.

The city council is expected to make a decision on whether to approve the plan at the city council meeting on May 20.
