17. Motion to Amend the Zoning Ordinance Regarding the Conservation Overlay Districts (Petitioner: Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent-Ardmore Neighborhood Association)
The Mayor and Aldermen approved this text amendment request following a zoning hearing at the March 29, 2018 City Council Meeting. The action being considered now is the approval of an ordinance to create an overlay district.
The Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent-Ardmore Neighborhood Association, petitioner, proposes a text amendment to amend the zoning ordinance creating an overlay district for the area within the neighborhood association’s boundaries to include the areas known as Ardsley Park, Chatham Crescent and Ardmore (File No. 17-007079-ZA). The proposed overlay (Article Q) is intended to require that proposed demolitions of historic buildings within this area be reviewed by the Metropolitan Planning Commission prior to the issuance of a building permit.
The Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent-Ardmore Neighborhood Association is also proposing to amend the Zoning Map (File No. 18-000225-ZA) to create the Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent Conservation Overlay District (CD-1) and the Ardmore Conservation Overlay District (CD-2).
On February 20, 2018, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval to amend the Zoning Ordinance to create Article Q for the historic Conservation Overlay Districts.
