Community Character policy updates are underway in Council District 5
On January 12, 2017, the Planning Commission voted to approve several Community Character policies in Council district 5. That vote came after several months of discussion among neighborhood residents, Councilmember Scott Davis, and Planning staff members.
Remember that policy is not zoning. Policy serves as guidance for planners when reviewing zone change requests and subdivision requests. Changing policy for an area does not change the existing zoning for those properties.

Proposed Changes for East Hill/Maynor Place neighborhoods
The East Hill and Maynor Place neighborhood associations are discussing changing their policies from Urban Neighborhood Evolving (T4 NE) to Urban Neighborhood Maintenance (T4 NM).
Earlier in this policy update process, discussions for these neighborhoods were grouped with the District 5 policy discussion described above. In order to facilitate additional community input, the proposed policy changes for East Hill and Maynor Place will move forward as a separate plan amendment scheduled to go before the Planning Commission at the February 23, 2017, regular meeting.
