Zoning Redesign and a Proposed New Zoning Ordinance

Back in October of 2018 (seems so long ago), the City’s Planning Department released the Pattern Book, the First Draft of the City’s Zoning Ordinance and the City’s First Draft of the City’s Zoning Map. Since then, the Planning Department has presented to the City Council (see Memo) and has been working with the City’s Councilors (presumably the ones from each of the Wards), scheduling meetings with each Ward (see below for Ward meeting schedule) to gather community input.

Here’s a list of the meetings – (some have happened already and there is no time listed so check with your Ward Councilors!):
