Council Member Palmisano would like to engage neighborhood residents in a series of focus groups on the topic of residential infill housing. The purpose of the discussions is to promote the sharing of ideas on strengthening construction management and zoning regulations for single-family homes in the 13th Ward. Staff from the department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) who are currently involved in studying zoning code and process improvements will review all notes from each focus group and explore residents’ ideas for viability.
Volunteer facilitators will be leading a series of 2-hour long focus groups on the following dates and times:
Linden Hills Recreation Center:
• Sat., March 29 at 2:00 p.m.
• Tues., April 8 at 8:00 a.m.
• Sat., April 5 at 10:00 a.m.
• Thurs., April 10 at 8:00 a.m.
