After two public hearings related to City zoning this week which were heard by the BOA's Legislation Committee (of which I am a member), the favorable recommendations with amendments, will be part of the agenda at the Tuesday, Feb. 16th, BOA regular meeting. The meeting is Tuesday evening at 7:00pm due to the Presidents Day holiday on Monday.
Last Monday night (2/8), the Legislation Committee gave its unanimous, favorable-as-amended support for City zoning ordinance text amendments to establish a neighborhood center mixed use zoning district (BA-1) and zoning map amendments to change the zoning of properties along Grand Avenue from James St. to Perkins ST. from General Business (BA) to Neighborhood Center Mixed Use (BA-1). This legislation now gets its First Reading before the full Board on Tuesday (more details in this Blog...)
Last night (2/11), just after midnight, the Legislation Committee gave its unanimous, favorable-as-amended support to Zoning Ordinance Map and Text Amendments which will designate a Planned Development District (PDD) at Yale owned property at 155-181 Whitney Ave. This will enable Yale to build a new School of Management campus on that property per their submitted general plans. This legislation too will get its First Reading before the full Board on Tuesday (more details in this Blog...)
At least nine new Communications will be read to the Board offering new proposals, orders, resolutions, ordinance amendments, etc. These will be sent to committee by the BOA President.
The BOA will hear a Second Reading and bring to a vote an Order to rename the corner of Church and Chapel as "John J. Boyle Blvd." for the day of the New Haven St. Patrick's Day parade.
