Potential Overlays

Inglewood Place-Jackson Park property owners are considering a new neighborhood conservation zoning overlay. In early January the proposal was amended to only include the Inglewood Place neighborhood.

The most recent public informational meeting was hosted by Councilman Davis and the neighborhood association on September 9, 2015 at the Litton Alumni Center on Gallatin Road. Earlier informational meetings took place on May 7, 2015 and November 22, 2010, also at the Litton Alumni Center on Gallatin Road. Another public informational meeting is planned for January 26, 2016, 6:30pm at Litton Alumni Center on Gallatin Road.

Opportunity for Contractors

The first Contractor's Authorization Training for Work in Historic Overlays was a huge success.

The MHZC has enacted a policy that will require that a contractor have a consultation meeting with MHZC staff before a preservation and building permit may be issued. To prevent holding-up the issuance of permits, the MHZC is offered a 1.5 hour class, specifically for contractors. Attendance authorized the contractor to receive permits immediately when they are available without the required consultation meeting. The purpose of the class and the consultations is to avoid simple yet costly and time-consuming violations and guide applicants through the process.
