​Project Background

The R4C and R2A zoning districts were established in the 1960’s. Since that time the City has experienced some significant redevelopment in these zones and concerns have been raised as to how this development fits within the current goals and policies of the City. 

In early 2009, the City Council directed City Planning Commission and Planning staff to work with the public and provide City Council with a report with recommendations for potential ordinance changes to the R2A and R4C residential zoning districts found in the Central Area.  In August 2009, a citizen Advisory Committee was appointed with members from each Council Ward as well as a landlord representative, Planning Commissioner and City Council member.

The Advisory Committee was charged with documenting issues and identify what, if any changes are needed. The Advisory Committee will work with staff throughout the course of the community outreach effort; advising on the outreach strategy, reviewing assumptions and providing feedback at important project milestones.
