City Council Hearing on Schlotzsky PUD Rezoning, Thursday, June 4 !! -- The City Council will hold a virtual public hearing for the rezoning of the Schlotzsky’s site at 218 South Lamar, where a large office building is proposed. Under the stay-at-home rules, neighbors who wish to speak at the hearing must literally phone it in. Speakers must register by phone or email by 12 pm noon on Wednesday June 3, the day before the hearing; otherwise, you will not be able to speak. Written comments must be emailed by 1 pm on Wednesday June 3. ZNA is urging all neighbors who are concerned about this case to write up their comments and email them to the City Council (and ask the case manager to include your comments in the case file). ZNA vigorously opposes this Planned Unit Development (PUD) and other rezonings that violate the Waterfront Overlay Ordinance.
