Regarding attendance at the Zoning Review Board meeting: All those who can attend the ZRB meeting beginning 6:00 p.m in City Council chambers on the second floor of City Hall at 55 Trinity Ave are encouraged to do so. All those people who come to support opposition to this rezoning will be able to show their opposition by raising their hand or standing when they are asked to do so. Their presence is important! There will be a speaker plan in place for speakers to make the case for opposition to Z-23-17, but if time remains of the allotted 10 minutes, then anyone can fill the time.
Z-23-17 is the fifth rezoning case listed on the agenda to be heard. Parking is available at the Government Center Parking Deck across Trinity Ave from the entrance to City Hall, and this garage can be accessed from Washington St. from the north or Central Ave. from the south.

Following is a list of some items that might be mentioned if one wishes to suggest reasons why this rezoning should not be approved. 1. The rezoning would not be consistent with the Comprehensive Development Plan. 2. No rationale has been given for public support of this rezoning. 3. The rezoning would be purely for the convenience and/or speculation of the property owner to the detriment of a purely residential street. 4. The building on the property is consistent with the current zoning since it is similar to the adjacent single-family residences. 5. The commercial rezoning of the property would permit the type of non-residential building not at all consistent with the adjacent single-family residences. 6. A precedent would be set for the intrusion of non-residential development on the first property of an otherwise purely residential street at the core of a neighborhood. 7. At the April 25 NPU-D meeting, the vote taken on Z-23-17 was 98 members in opposition to 6 in support! At the preceding Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association meeting on April 17, the vote was 60-2 in opposition.
