The overlay proposal aims to preserve existing uses for parcels currently zoned mixed-use, but where the use and zoning are not aligned. The text amendment will be heard by all Council District Project Review Committees and the Planning Commission before coming to City Council.

We have requested that the District 3 Committee meeting be heard after the holidays to ensure our residents are able to engage in the discussion. District 3’s Committee meeting will meet virtually on January 25th at 5:30 p.m.
