Good news! Barrio Historico has won its appeal before Mayor and Council, rejecting a proposed townhouse development incompatible with its historic zone. (It’s Item #10 on the attached Legal Action Report.)
“It was moved by Council Member Kozachik, duly seconded and PASSED by a roll call vote of 6 to 1 (Council Member Fimbres dissenting), to reverse the Planning and Development Services Department Director’s decision, grant the appeal and deny the HPZ application.
“Mr. Rankin noted that the basis of the motion, as provided in the Mayor and Council’s discussion, was that the application was not compatible with the purposes and standards of the HPZ and the applicable technical standards.”
