Meeting topics: Presentation of the photomontages for Alternatives 7R and 8 and discussion of the CAC report

Compared to earlier alternatives, Alternative 7R (Revised Early Laurelon Development) and Alternative 8 (Early Laurelon Development without Hartmann) reduces building height by 100 feet, stair steps buildings away from Sand Pont Way and 40th Ave. NE and reduce density.

This document includes a photograph of the existing view from each of thirteen locations described below. The date and time the photograph was taken is also provided. For each location, the photograph of the existing view is followed by two simulated views, or photomontages, intended to show how the view may change with Alternatives 7R and 8. Where the existing view does not change a single image is shown for both alternatives. The photomontages were created using Adobe Photoshop computer software. The design of each alternative was created using AutoCAD, and then converted to a three-dimensional (3D) model using SketchUp. The 3D models are then converted into a two dimensional picture and inserted into the base photograph. These are simulated views using the technology that is currently available, and are intended to approximate as close as technology allows how each of the alternatives may appear.
