CodeNEXT impact on Barton Hills

Dear Neighbors,

As a sneak preview: the changes will be most significant in the areas closest to S. Lamar: The Westforest area and the area along Rae Dell east of Barton Skyway.

As you know, a new Land Development Code, called Code NEXT, is under review. You can read the proposed new Land Development code that was released in January at the link below. The zoning categories are described in chapter 23-4.

Here is the link to the zoning map that was released a month ago. You can move the map around and zoom in and zoom out.

There will be essentially two zoning codes. The Transect Zone will see significant changes In Barton Hills, these are the four Wests close to S. Lamar and Rae Dell east of Barton Skyway.

You also can use the link above to enter your feedback. You can comment on the code or you can comment specifically on the zoning of your property, You can enter your street address in the box to get your property.

Please submit your feedback on the code by June 7. You can comment on the proposed zoning map until July 7. The BHNA, as well as other organizations, are asking for an extension for the comment period, but we are uncertain whether this will be granted.

Best, Peter Hess
BHNA Area Development Coordinator

2017 Barton Hills Neighborhood Survey

Hi Neighbors

Hope everyone is enjoying our wonder spring!

The BHNA has put together a survey where we would like your input on the neighborhood association and related neighborhood events. We are trying to make our association as user friendly as possible and trying to get as many Barton Hills residents involved by coming to the quarterly meetings and our neighborhood sponsored events such as the Greenbelt Guardian workdays, 4th of July, School Park workdays, etc.

As you know we are not in a home owners association (with much larger mandatory dues) so our voluntary neighborhood nassociation really counts on the very small yearly $10 donation and of course we would like to get all approximate 1100 households signed up as members, regardless of the amount you and your family are able or willing to participate.

This survey will be post on the website, nexdoor, and the upcoming newsletter. We are four weeks out from the April 25th quarter BHNA meeting, so we are hoping to have a large amount of survey input to be able to report back at the meeting, as well as posting general results on the online forums.

As noted on the bottom of the survey we would like to know who you are and all participants will be kept confidential.

Please let us know what you think of the BHNA and what we can do to make it better for you!
