This map shows how the developments in the area are slowly
starting to tip the balance from the low-rise (yellow) lots to the
high-rise (red). This is coming from all sides. The interior lots along
E. 8th and Kermit Place will soon be overshadowed and outnumbered if we
do not draw the line now.
This map shows how our
neighborhood can preserve the balance between high density housing
along exterior lots and low-density housing in interior lots by
resisting the upzoning of certain key lots. These lots do not need to
be upzoned, but downzoned, with a corresponding modification of the
density and allowed use along major thoroughfares.
