Zoning Change Requests
One of the biggest concerns individuals have vocalized in the 49th Ward is a lack of a coherent plan for the development in the 49th Ward. Currently, development seems to be something that is just allowed to happen to us and community input, when allowed for, is often at the end of a decision-making process.
Alderwoman Hadden wants to work with community residents to ensure that we truly have a transparent, community-driven zoning process. Additionally, she wants the community to collaborate with local builders and developers to determine what we want to see in the ward in the next 5, 10, and 15 years.
Community driven zoning has worked in other wards and will work here as well.
