Zoning Changes. The primary topic of discussion at the RCA meeting on June 21 was the City’s ”Housing for All” initiative, which would implement changes to zoning which would allow increased density, at least some of which would affect Rosemont. A compilation of the materials circulated at the meeting is available at https://rosemontcitizensassoc.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/RCA-Zoning-Materials-June-2023.pdf. A vote was taken to send a letter to the City to ask that it ensure that the process is not rushed, deferring consideration of more specific issues that are still under discussion by the City. We will plan to circulate additional information in the near future; the current schedule is for the City to announce a formal set of proposals in September.
PELT Update. A compilation of the materials circulated at the meeting by the Planning, Environmental, Land use, and Transportation committee is also available at https://rosemontcitizensassoc.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/RCA-PELT-Materials-June-2023.pdf..
