At each meeting, the respective boards will vote either FOR or AGAINST historic overlay zoning, after reviewing the staff report and hearing testimony from affected parties.  Their recommendations will be forwarded to the NEXT governing board. The demolition and destruction of this historical home will downgrade property values of all the adjacent properties, and puts current historical properties at risk for future demolition.  We must protect the integrity of North Central and retain our character and history for generations to come.

The NCPHA STRONGLY supports the Historic Overlay in order to protect our neighborhood and larger parcels from future subdivision development and higher density.  The McElroy house has a long history that represents decades of the way of life in Phoenix.  The historic overlay is the ONLY way this house will not be demolished in the coming months.

Zoning Updates - February 2019

The purpose of the City of Phoenix zoning ordinance is to establish standards and regulations to govern the use of land and structures in the City  and for review and approval of all proposed development of property in the City, and to provide a development review process that will be comprehensive, consistent, and efficient in the implementation of the General Plan and other adopted goals, policies and standards of the City.

Each month we will be providing active zoning cases that the association will be involved with, to include site plans, project descriptions, City of Phoenix staff reports and pertinent links to the City of Phoenix’s Planning and Development department.
