Upcoming HPNA Votes for December 1, 2014 Meeting

At the November 3, 1914 meeting of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association (HPNA), the following two resolutions were proposed by members of the HPNA with regard to the rezoning (from SF-3-NCCD-NP to NO-NCCD-NP) of the property at 4500 Speedway to facilitate its use as a restaurant:


Resolution One:

The Hyde Park Neighborhood Association does not support the zoning change and the changes to the neighborhood plan.


Resolution Two:

The Hyde Park Neighborhood Association supports the restaurant with minimal zoning changes.


These two proposed resolutions will be discussed, possibly amended, and voted on at the December 1, 2014 meeting of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association.

We did not post, as required by our bylaws, a notice about the ADU vote to the Fresh+ bulletin board. As a result, someone has protested the vote and we will have to revote at the December 1, 2014 meeting.


ADU Resolution:

City Council resolutions concerning Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) should not override the neighborhood planning process or neighborhood plans.  Therefore the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association does not support a city-wide or blanket policy change pertaining to the construction of ADUs, such as resolution #20140612-062 passed by the City Council on June 12, 2014.  We see our neighborhood plan, which grew out of a process of civic participation, as central to maintaining the character and the quality of life of our neighborhood.


In order to vote on all these resolutions, you must be a dues-paid member of the HPNA for a period of 30 days before the vote takes place.
