City Council 2nd and 3rd Reading on Schlotzsky PUD Rezoning, Thursday, December 3 -- The City Council 2nd and 3rd reading for the Schlotzsky PUD rezoning is now scheduled to take place on December 3 after being postponed a couple of times. The City Council previously passed the rezoning on first reading, 7-4. Two more readings are necessary to pass the rezoning ordinance, and both are scheduled to take place at this December 3 City Council hearing. ZNA is still urging all neighbors who are concerned about this case to write up their comments and email them to the City Council. ZNA vigorously opposes this Planned Unit Development (PUD) and other rezonings that violate the Waterfront Overlay Ordinance as well as the PUD ordinance itself.
