For many people, the idea of spending time talking about zoning comes close to waterboarding as an attractive activity. However, in our modern world, zoning is a key parameter for how our neighbourhoods look and feel and work, and that directly has an effect on how we feel. The Grandview Community Plan has suggested a number of significant changes to zonings throughout Grandview. Most of these changes allow/impose “new housing choices” in the form of higher density options.
Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will probably understand my take on the Plan. But you will soon have a chance to see for yourself what this all means. City Planners are holding two open house events later this month specifically to present what changes to zoning might mean.
