Development in line with the General Plan

Park Circle was featured in a KPBS segment where reporter Alison St John interviewed Touchstone’s Kerry Garza to learn more about the project and how it aligns with the General Plan. The interview was part of a story discussing the “precedent-setting choice” voters will face with the Lilac Hills Initiative on November’s ballot.
