Zone it Right West Highlands

Say no to more inappropriate zoning in West Highlands.

Zoning changes and development are occurring at a rapid pace in West Highlands, frequently out of character in ways that negatively impact the residential character and quality of life in our neighborhood.

Yet another example of this is underway at the gateway to our neighborhood at 32nd Avenue and Irving Street. This empty lot is zoned for residential, single family homes - an ideal opportunity for residential development in this part of our neighborhood. Developers of this lot want to dramatically up-zone this parcel to allow for construction of a large 28,000-30,000 square foot, two story, character altering medical building. This would be the largest building in the immediate neighborhood. Developers and the property owners, Emmaus Lutheran Church, are refusing to engage in meaningful dialogue with neighbors despite repeated requests. 

While neighbors are not opposed to development on this lot, we are dismayed by the lack of dialogue and want to ensure neighborhood input is received in this potential rezoning effort. We are asking City Council Members to decline any zoning change on this lot that is not the direct result of a meaningful neighborhood engagement effort. 

Please sign the petition below in support of a neighborhood engagement process and in opposition to a zoning change without neighborhood input.
