High-Rise Report Is About Zoning, Too: Reader


Frequent Bulldog contributor K.A. has deep reservations about the high-rise report:

The part at the end of the title of the high-rise report (“and zoning study”) is not just about high rise development.

“The zoning changes, approved by the committee, would permit light manufacturing and food processing businesses, like micro-breweries and craft furniture makers, to operate in other urban areas. These businesses would be able to sell their products on-site through a retail or restaurant component while also distributing their products for resale.”

So we can expect micro-breweries and small manufacturers to fill up empty storefronts around town. It’s no surprise developers want to expand zoning.

It is scary that this is happening without enough consultation for even elected officials to know about it.
