For Immediate Release
October 12, 2004 (MINNEAPOLIS) Residents and property owners can learn more about potential zoning changes in neighborhoods with a Light Rail Transit (LRT) station at an open house hosted by the City of Minneapolis, Tuesday, Nov. 16, 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Midtown YWCA, 2121 Lake St. E. The City is considering changes to the zoning code that will help implement long-term development plans for neighborhoods with LRT stations.
If the proposed changes to the zoning code are approved, certain areas surrounding LRT stations will be designated as Pedestrian Oriented Overlay Districts. This means the proposed regulations and incentives will encourage appropriate development within these districts.
At the open house, property owners and residents will be able to review, discuss and make comments on the proposed zoning code changes and boundaries of the Pedestrian Oriented Overlay Districts.

An official public hearing before the Minneapolis Planning Commission on the proposed changes is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 13, Room 317, Minneapolis City Hall.
