Former City Councilman Sandy Greyson’s column and recent post about form-based zoning received a good amount of web traffic. The next official hearing on form-based zoning is tomorrow at 1 p.m., when the proposed ordinance goes before the city’s housing committee (room 6E South at City Hall).
As previously noted, the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League, representing 29 Oak Cliff neighborhoods, was one of the organizations that helped form a compromise ordinance between neighborhood residents and developers, which city staff later wanted to adjust. The OOCCL’s official position can be found here. The two main sticking points for neighbors are residential proximity slopes and residential transition districts, which Greyson explains well in her column.
