To ICON Members and Participants
Our August meeting will be held tonight, 7 p.m., at First Church of the Brethren, Ash and Yale.
The Zoning Review Committee met to discuss guiding principles by which they feel ICON should evaluate zoning proposals. There are a number of zoning issues being considered by the city staff and Zoning Commission which will have an effect upon our neighborhoods 1) down zoning in MacArthur Boulevard and Enos Park, 2) changes to traffic flow along Lawrence at MacArthur and Walnut, 3) ordinance waiver for parolee half way houses, and 4) waiver for homeless shelter.
The committee did not review the merits of any of these zoning issues but concentrated on potential guidelines ICON could use to determine if we want to support these or future zoning proposals. We based our discussion on factors we felt would impact on the “Quality of life” for our neighborhoods.
We want to use tonight as a working meeting to identify those items we feel are critical to the Quality of Life in our neighborhoods.
We hope you’ll join us to help make a list of things we “want” for our neighborhoods.
