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
