The commission is considering amending the zoning plan for the Capitol area to increase permitted building heights across Woodlane from the capitol. The proposed modifications to the Plan would rezone two square blocks to the southeast of the State Capitol (between 6th and 7th Streets, from Woodlane to Pulaski) from Zone A2 to A1. While the existing Master Plan limits buildings to three stories, the proposed change would allow for the construction of new buildings in this area up to five stories in height. This would intrude on the currently protected view of the capitol building.
The Capitol Zoning District Commission will vote on the proposed rezoning on Thursday, September 29 at 5:30 p.m. at the CZDC office at 410 South Battery Street in Little Rock.
What can you do?
Contact Capitol Zoning District Commissioners and ask them to vote "No" on the proposed rezoning next Thursday.
