Big news today for the vacant corner of 23rd & Union. The developer’s request for a rezone from the current 40 foot height limit to a 65 foot limit has been conditionally approved by the Director of the Department of Planning and Development.
The next step is a meeting with the Hearing Examiner, scheduled for June 16th at 1:30pm. Public comments will be taken and any appeals will be heard during that meeting.
You can also send written comments through 6/16, mailed to

I’m not clear on what steps will still remain after the public hearing, but I’ve got a call in to Jim Mueller, the developer, to get some more information on that. I’ll update this story when I learn some more.
