Public Meeting Invitation: City of Minneapolis Conservation District Ordinance Discussion Tuesday, January 28 at 4:30 p.m.
WHAT: On Tuesday, January 28, the City of Minneapolis will be hosting a public meeting to discuss a proposed Conservation District Ordinance. The meeting will take place in City Hall Room 319 starting at 4:30 pm.
The City’s proposed Conservation District Ordinance effort is designed to ensure development in notable areas respects neighborhood character. Developed using public input, the ordinance conserves notable visual character in a manner that offers more protections than the zoning code, but fewer protections than historic district design guidelines. Under this proposed ordinance, two-thirds of property owners in a contiguous area with notable visual character would have the opportunity to request conservation district status.
If passed, the proposed ordinance would amend the City¹s existing Heritage Preservation Regulations
Comments on the draft of this ordinance will be accepted in-person during the public meeting or by emailing City staff member John Smoley at jo[email protected] through 4:30 pm on February 4, 2014.
WHEN: Tuesday, January 28, 4:30 pm
WHERE: City Hall, 350 South 5th Street, Minneapolis, MN (Room 319)
MORE: Following the gathering of public input, the ordinance will be revised and prepared for review by the State Historic Preservation Office, the Heritage Preservation Commission, and the City Council. For updated project information please visit:
