Why is DPD hosting this meeting? Last year, the 35th Ave Committee requested the city include funding for a legislative rezone of the 35th Ave Business District following the zoning recommendations that were presented in the final Future 35th Ave NE Plan, which was approved by the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association and the Wedgwood Community Council. The zoning recommendations presented in this plan were developed following significant community feedback and engagement.

As part of our request to the City and the City’s legislative rezone process, the Department of Planning and Development reviewed and revised community zoning recommendations based on their technical analyses and zoning standards. On June 24th, DPD will present the results of their review and solicit additional feedback on their legislative rezone proposal. The City’s proposed rezone differs from the recommendations presented in the Future 35th Ave NE Plan.

Please help get the word out by letting your neighbors know about this upcoming meeting and opportunity to be involved. Our city and our neighborhood are going to change within the next twenty years.  This is one opportunity to have your voice heard about how a part of our community changes.
