Interim Height Ordiance

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: The Uptown Interim Height Ordinance should be extended

The current 24-year old Uptown Community Plan and related zoning allow for building heights of up to 150 feet and 200 feet along portions of Washington Street, University Avenue and 4th, 5th and 6th Avenues in Bankers Hill/Park West, Hillcrest and Mission Hills. However, Uptown is not Downtown, and such taller buildings would overwhelm these lower scale, profile and historic character of the Uptown neighborhoods.
