Say NO to B-4 - Central Business District Zoning
Say NO to B-4 – Central Business District Zoning
This petition to Richmond City Council asks council members to vote NO on the proposed rezoning of Broad Street between Belvidere Street and Arthur Ashe Boulevard, now scheduled for Monday, December 14. The proposed plan will rezone significant land North of Broad Street to “B-4 – Central Business District,” allowing 20+ story buildings by right.
Why Vote NO?
- 20+ stories is too high. It will dwarf the surrounding historic neighborhoods and change the character of this entire area of the City.
- The north side of Broad Street should be rezoned TOD-1, allowing 12 stories in height and more density. Monroe Ward and Scott’s Addition were recently rezoned to TOD-1.
- City Council adopted 12-story height limitations in 2017 as part of the Pulse Corridor Plan. The proposed rezoning violates the approved Plan.
Sign this petition to tell City Council to say “NO” to B-4 zoning on the north side of Broad Street.
