A big thank you to all of the people that participated in the process. It is important to share your ideas with City staff, the Planning Commission, Houghton Community Council, City Council, and with each other. While the final Plan and Zoning do not fully meet the desires or fully address the concerns of many of the residents of the Central Houghton and Everest neighborhoods, the result is (in my opinion) much better than the zoning that was previously in place.
The next steps will be to work with the City Council to get funding for key transportation improvements and to monitor development applications for properties within the HENC. As development applications are submitted, we will work to alert people through this web site, our Facebook page, and as part of our monthly meetings (and associated agenda and notes).
