Down Zoning 2013 Update

One of the major goals of the GC-HHDA in 2013 is down zoning, a change in city zoning regulations that will help bring homes back to their original single family status. Through the mid-1900’s, many homes were divided into any number of rental units. As families began to move back into the Gold Coast-Hamburg District, the cry went out to return to the first purpose of these homes – single family. In 1992-93 the Association began this down zoning process, and many wonderful historic homes in the Hamburg Historic District, through city re-zoning, have been returned to the single family or duplex status. There are remaining pocket areas that remain zoned for multi-dwellings, and the goal for the year is to re-establish more properties to single family homes. Dave Cordes chairs this committee.
