Regular City Council meetings return from summer break Wednesday, and a plan to rezone Jefferson Boulevard from Beckley to Polk is on the agenda. But City Councilman Scott Griggs says he will delay the scheduled public hearing on the proposal until Aug. 27.

Griggs says he wants to focus on the Oak Cliff Gateway plan before making moves on the Jefferson plan.

The Jefferson proposal sets standards for parking, lighting, how sidewalks may be used and what businesses are acceptable. The goal is to create standards for medium-density retail, office and multifamily residential uses.

Live/work spaces, boutique hotels and places that sell alcohol would be allowed. Pawnshops and automotive businesses not already there would not be allowed to open in the future.
