November 11th GCCA Zoning meeting
Following all the excitement of Election Day (er, week), Garden Court has a regularly scheduled zoning and development committee meeting at 8pm on Wednesday, November 11th. There are no pending zoning cases, so our public agenda should be relatively brief. We are still meeting virtually, via Zoom; log-in detail are at the bottom of this post.
Agenda for the Whole Meeting:
Approval of October meeting minutes
Zoning cases: none
Report: outdoor dining applications last month
Report: by-right permits granted this month
Report: any status updates for ongoing projects of significance (4900 Spruce, 4701 Pine, 303 S. 51st, 314 S 46th Street)
Updates, if any: Affordability and Historic District working groups*
Committee Working Session (closed): housing affordability
*GCCA zoning has established two working groups on subjects outside our general work flow of reviewing zoning cases assigned by the councilperson's office - 1. affordability; 2. historic district. The first is looking at what practical things GCCA, in its capacity as a volunteer-run RCO, can do to address housing affordability in the neighborhood. The second is working to identify an historic district to consider nominating to the local register. When ready, the working groups will present material publicly and may gather feedback/input; any actions/decisions will be made by vote of the full committee. Stay tuned!
As always, if you are interested in receiving email updates from the Zoning Committee, or are interested in joining when there is an opening, please email Zoning@GardenCourtCA.org
