As part of the continuing community plan update process, Uptown Planners will make important decisions about building heights in UH at its next meeting on March 4, 6 pm @ the Joyce Beers Center in the Uptown Center shopping complex.
The University Heights Historical Society would like community input on maximum height limits to submit to Uptown Planners. To get a sense of what different building heights look like, please review this series of slides developed by City Planning staff in 2012. In addition, the adjacent Uptown Draft Community Plan map reflects building heights recommended at a community plan update charrette hosted by City Planning staff in June 2011.
Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey. Deadline for participation is 5 pm on Friday, Feb. 28. You are also welcome to attend the Uptown Planners meeting and provide your input in person next week.
