Event details

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) and Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) have released the Discussion Draft of the Lower Southeast Rising Area Plan. This draft plan proposes zoning changes that will help expand opportunities for neighborhood businesses and housing choices, along with transportation improvements, to make it easier for residents and others to meet daily needs nearby and help address housing affordability.

In this “online open house” event, participants had the opportunity to hear more about these draft proposals from project staff, ask questions, and give input to help refine the plan.

If you missed the live event, you can still engage with the project through a self-guided online open house and share your feedback through an online survey through Friday, June 23.
