Colonial Place / Riverview Zoning Study

City Council is expected to vote on the matter on June 11th - 7pm in City Council Chambers - 11th floor of City Hall. 

What is it?
The Colonial Place/Riverview Civic League and City Staff within the Department of City Planning have been working together on a community-led initiative to identify and protect community character within the Colonial Place, Cruser Place, and Riverview communities. As new infill homes are occasionally developed within an established community, having an understanding of neighborhood character can ensure that new homes do not appear out-of-scale, out-of-context, and ultimately out-of-place with the rest of the block.
