Union Park Community Plan

Every District Council creates a 10 year Community Plan which once finalized will be a part of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The plan will influence local decision-making by the city’s planning department and other public agencies. It will provide a vision for development and investment in our neighborhood and influence rezoning. City Council recently passed a resolution determining that uses expressed in Community Plans are considered stronger than current zoning. Please review the plan here and consider how it reflects your vision for our community. As the recently revised plan states, we will be partnering with Union Park to conduct community engagement regarding Selby Avenue between Ayd Mill Road and Lexington Avenue in the coming months. 

As a follow up to our March 2016 Town Hall Meeting, information and links are provided below.

Currently, Lex-Ham is zoned as residential (R) south of 94 except for isolated nodes on Selby. Here are additional links:

Next steps might include zoning studies or a small area plan. The files below include information about both and also a sample of a small area plan (Shepard Davern Plan).

Something to consider is the parking required to accommodate higher density and additional development along Selby. Files attached below describe more about design standards and requirements for “Traditional Neighborhood” zoning which is different from the current “Residential” zoning.
