There was also progress to report.  After a year of non-responsiveness from City Planning (which must approve or initiate any rezoning), the city agency is now finally reviewing and considering this rezoning request.

  • Sign the on-line petition in support of the much-needed rezoning of the C6-1 zone in the Far West Village, and forward it to your friends, family, and neighbors and ask them to do the same.
