Land Use and Rezones


The Land Use and Rezone Committee monitors zoning and development issues both inside the Ravenna-Bryant area, and in “gateway” neighborhoods that surround it – including Roosevelt, the University District and Laurelhurst.

RBCA is also represented on the City/University Community Advisory Committee (CUCAC), which: advises the City and the University on the physical development of the greater University area; encourage provision of adequate City services to the area; assist the University and City in preserving positive aspects of the University’s presence; review and comment upon potential adverse effects of removing aspects of University programs from the University campus; and assist in the protection of the adjacent community and business areas from the adverse effects of University and City actions.


Contact the RBCA Land Use Committee to learn more about local land use and rezone issues.
