Hello Neighbors,
BCNA has reserved the High Road July 5, from 6 to 8 pm for a workshop on reviewing the CodeNext zoning on your property and commenting on the maps before the July 7 deadline. Bring your laptop. Meet your neighbors. I know this is short notice, and I’ll post more details as they solidify, but for now please mark
your calendar and join us–especially if you’ve not yet commented on the City’s CodeNext map.
Cheers,

BCNA Special Event Parking Proposal 2017-05-12

Affected Neighborhoods Plan

While still in its formative stage, this program is intended to replace the existing barricade system. The objective of Special Event RPP, like the barricades, is to prevent over parking in the neighborhood during special events. It has the additional benefit of keeping Dawson and Bouldin open to all traffic and will be extended to Mary Street which helps address the over parking that was occurring South of the barricades on Gibson Street.
