Jackson Park-Inglewood property owners are considering new neighborhood conservation zoning overlays.

The most recent public informational meeting about the overlay was held on September 9, 6:30 p.m. at the 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.
