The new zoning classifications that we have been working on for sometime were introduced by Councilman Mark Squilla as an ordinance in City Council on Thursday, September 10, 2015
The next steps will be a reading in the Rules Committee on September 30, then 2 more readings in Council and a final vote after that.
Below is the plan that was introduced.
