MU (Mixed-Use) or UR-Zoning close to us in Arlington Heights
On Thursday, May 18th at 6:00 in City Council Chambers city staff is holding a special open meeting to present the most recent proposed changes to MU and UR Zoning and hear comments from all interested, and all of us who live in Arlington Heights should be interested.

Many of the proposed 28 changes to the ordinance are welcome changes.  However, some might cause even more density, less parking and other changes that may threaten your neighborhoods.

The “poster child” for Fort Worth’s urban village/mixed use zoning concept is So 7 where it has been unfolding over the last 10 years.   Today, traffic congestion and the lack of parking spaces have emerged as the biggest challenges in So7, largely because of the dramatic reduction in parking requirements that come with mixed use zoning.  Another challenge in So7 is the predominance of bars in the area:  40 with 4 more in the works.  This does not include the almost 20 restaurants that serve alcohol.  Among the new changes proposed for mixed use zoning is adding bars to MU-1 which currently prohibits them.

Please join with other neighbors, neighborhoods associations, & neighborhood leaders to speak up at tomorrows meeting:

SP+ is expecting delivery of the parking stickers on Friday of this week. The installation of the signs are in progress and we are hoping to get a status update in the near future.  The earliest expected enforcement will be January 13th.

Additionally, SP+ will provide the link to the website where residents can go online and register their vehicles from their house or work, etc.  It will contain instructions on how to register and get credentials for parking.  It is anticipated that the link will be in place in the very near future.
