What's New at the Historic Zoning Commission

Potential Overlays

The Belmont-Hillsboro Neighborhood is considering an expansion of their neighborhood conservation zoning overlay (NCZO) that would include the 1100 blocks of Gale Lane and Clayton Ave, south of Sevier Park. An informational meeting was held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 6 p.m. at Sunnyside Mansion in the middle of Sevier Park. If adopted, the property owners would follow the existing design guidelines for the Belmont-Hillsboro NCZO. The potential overlay passed the MHZC public hearing on 6/21/17.

The Whitland Neighborhood is considering an expansion of their neighborhood conservation zoning overlay (NCZO) that will include Leondard and Carden Avenues. The MHZC public hearing is scheduled for July 19, 2017, 2 p.m., Sonny West Conference Center in the Howard Office Building at 700 2nd Ave S. The expansion will require a revision of the period of significance on page 10 of the design guidelines, section 10, II.A.7 from "1910-1945" to "1908-1957," which is consistent with the Whitland National Register of Historic Places nomination.

A portion of the Sylvan Park neighborhood is considering a neighborhood conservation zoning overlay that will include the 4500 blocks of Nebraska and Colorado Avenue. The MHZC public hearing is scheduled for July 19, 2017, 2 p.m., Sonny West Conference Center in the Howard Office Building at 700 2nd Ave S. View draft design guidelines.
