A Short ULURP Report

Aaron Short is first up with a recap of last night’s CB1 Land Use Committee meeting on the Broadway Triangle rezoning.

The Committee’s recommendation was to approve the various rezoning and disposition actions with a series of caveats (among them, significant funding for business relocation, maintaining or increasing the area’s open space ratio, creating a transparent process for the disposition of city-owned property in the Triangle). The main discussion among Committee members was whether to approve with conditions or reject with the same conditions noted as objections. Interestingly, no one from the Coalition bothered to make a motion to reject the application outright. Nor was there a motion to go for the higher-density alternative, which is in scope.

As always, these votes are recommendations – the Board itself has the final say. On July 14.
