The Hill Community Engagement
In recent years, residents and property owners in The Hill have voiced their concern regarding the increased redevelopment of houses in The Hill. In addition, the recently adopted Land Use Plan recommends a project for the City to engage with the neighborhood to explore the topic further. In 2018 the project was initiated and divided into phases. The purpose of Phase I is to first establish a vision for redevelopment of The Hill neighborhood and determine whether additional development regulations are desired in order to maintain the character of the neighborhood. Then, public engagement efforts of Phase I will determine if there should be a Phase II.
The Hill Neighborhood Steering Committee
On September 18, 2018, City Council appointed The Hill Neighborhood Steering Committee via Resolution Number 18-30. The Committee will help draft and provide guidance on the redevelopment vision for The Hill and serve to champion that vision based on neighborhood input.
