Commission: Infill report mostly good news

Current single-family neighborhoods proposed to be rezoned under the Residential Infill Project.

The new economic report of a rezoning plan working its way to the City Council was well received by most of the members of the citizen committee working on it last Tuesday.

The majority of the Planning and Sustainability Committee was pleased that the report said the current Residential Infill Project recommendations will create far more housing units in neighborhoods now zoned for single-family homes over the next 20 years. The units would also cost far less to rent than single family hoomes because they would be in duplexes, triplexes and four-plexes.
