Candidate Zone gets into zoning

Friday, September 12, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

District 7 candidate Melissa Zone took on the proposed office development at the Crestview Korean Church this week. In a news release about the proposal, Zone wrote that the case is an example of a process problem in Austin, where city staff sides with the developer “despite vocal and active protest from the community.” Zone attached a letter to City Council that asks members to reject the developer’s rezoning request and plan amendment. If you need a refresher on the case, check out our story about the item’s review at Planning Commission last month.
