I haven't seen a recent article about the status of Cedar Landing. In a June 5, 2013, article, you mentioned a Planning Commission meeting that was to be held in July. If that meeting occurred, I'd be interested in an update as well as any other related information.

You weren't the only one wondering what happened about Cedar Landing. We couldn't find anything in our files, or the city website, listing agendas or meeting minutes.
A call to Kelly Aiken at the Medford Planning Department confirmed we here at Since You Asked World Headquarters hadn't completely lost our marbles. (Then again, we can presume few present-day Mail Tribune employees ever played with marbles in their pre-journalistic existence.)
Cedar Landing developers apparently asked for the matter to be addressed at a later date, Aiken said.
"Because it was moved back, we haven't sent out public-hearing notices, and it hasn't appeared on an agenda," the senior planner said. "It's not infrequent for something like that to happen. Sometimes our own comments will trigger something making an applicant not want to appear before the commission. In this case, it's been moved four or five times."
For now, the matter is slated to be addressed at the Sept. 12 Planning Commission meeting.
