Zoning Committee looking for new members
CCRA zoning committee provides a monthly public forum for neighbors and applicants seeking variances to the zoning code to discuss proposed construction projects and consider the impacts of the projects on their surroundings.  Zoning is concerned with issues such as use, height, density, setbacks and open space.  You don't need to be familiar with the zoning code to apply, but must be willing to listen and learn.   We strive to have a cross section of residents from different parts of the neighborhood, professional backgrounds, and perspectives. If you are interested, please submit a statement of interest and resume with Zoning Committee as the subject.
