Preserve Hyde Park

On November 13, 2019, we received confirmation from the Department of City Planning that the developer, Kenneth J. French, submitted an “Application for Major Subdivision” on November 8, 2019 for the subject parcel.  We are reviewing the application and will release more information as we substantiate findings.

Download the application on this home page for more information.

Let City Council know we want to Preserve Hyde Park.

Subdivision Application

The developer’s request for the zone change to SF-2 is on indefinite ‘hold.’  The developer has since applied for a subdivision under the current SF-6 zoning.  The latest proposal includes 4 single-family homes. The plan indicates significant front and rear yard variances will be required.

A PUBLIC HEARING is PROJECTED to be held on Friday December 6th to discuss the latest proposal at which time the City Planning Commission will determine if this latest proposal will go forward.

Our Neighborhood Concerns

Zone Change from Single Family 6,000 sq. ft. lot (SF-6) to Single Family 2,000 sq. ft. lot (SF-2) allows developers/builders to change the property setback requirements and thus change the character of surrounding neighborhoods without the consent of the local Neighborhood Council or neighborhood residents.

Rezoning
SF-6 to SF-2
  • This high-density housing designation adds 12 on-street parking spaces and 6 driveways in merging traffic.

  • This development abuts an intersection that consists of 5 different two-way streets.

  • Safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers at this busy intersection is an issue.
