That means that city planning staff, the Planning Board, and the City Council have until June 4th to get new, more permanent regulations for the R-6 zone, in place. Some of these regulations may be specific to the Hill, while others may apply to the R-6 zone elsewhere in the city. (Check the city's zoning map viewer to see what areas of Portland are zoned R-6.)
As the city works toward this goal, it's important for elected officials and staff to hear from residents, property owners, developers, and others about growth and change on Munjoy Hill. Hearing from a variety of people with varying perspectives will help inform staff and elected officials as they consider the trends, challenges, and opportunities associated with new development in the city.
To that end, the city will hold two listening sessions on Munjoy Hill.
Monday, February 26th, 7 PM to 9 PM, East End Community School
Saturday, March 24th, 11 AM to 1 PM, East End Community School
Following the listening sessions, staff will propose any changes to the rules governing development on Munjoy Hill. Those proposed changes would go to the Planning Board in April, and on to the City Council in May, with the hope of having new regulations in place as of June 4th.
More information on this effort is available here, on the city's Long Range Planning project page.
