Our Alternate Zoning Petition!

As an alternative to Mark Development's petition for zoning changes, the Riverside Committee submitted a zoning amendment petition that is based on a development with a smaller total square footage (650,000), a  residential focus (441 units), and sufficient commercial space to offset city costs and retail to support residents.

Our goal is to create a livable community at Riverside, including a community center and meaningful open space, while preserving the qualities of Grove Street and the abutting communities of Lower Falls and Auburndale.

Download the slides and narrative presented on June 4th to the City Council's Zoning and Planning Committee, the text of the zoning petition, and the memorandum filed in support of the petition.
