Meeting on rezoning of Hull Street is tonight

Rezoning changes would allow for two additional stories of height for new construction and require less parking for multifamily and restaurants.

Planning and Development Review (PDR) is holding a public meeting with Councilwoman Ellen Robertson about the proposed rezoning of Hull Street between Cowardin Avenue and E. 9th Street.

PDR held a public meeting about the proposal on August 31st and received mostly positive feedback, which would involve rezoning the area from UB-2 to B-5 to allow for two additional stories of height for new construction and require less parking for uses such as multifamily and restaurants. They believe that by removing such barriers to development, will help encourage the continued revitalization of the historic commercial corridor.

PDR gave an informational presentation to the City Planning Commission on October 16th, at which point Councilwoman Robertson asked that an additional public meeting be held to make sure the businesses and property owners were in full support of the proposal.

The meeting is tonight, November 14th at 6 p.m. at Mid-Atlantic Properties (1417 ½ Hull Street).
