On March 16, the City Council rejected a property owner’s petition to change the zoning of five parcels along Lincoln Street near 1000 East.
The property owner asked to change the zoning regulations from low to medium density in a residential neighborhood, giving them the option to build multi-family housing with greater density in the future. The proposed changes impact the city’s zoning map and master plan. The subject properties are part of the Central City National Historic District in the Bryant Neighborhood. View some additional background on the project and responses to community feedback.
