Oppose Blackburn Avenue Rezoning
There is currently a proposal before the Urban County Council to rezone three contiguous lots on Blackburn Avenue from R-2 (duplex) to R-5 (high rise). The developer plans to destroy a 1908 home on one of the lots and build a three-story, 36-unit, high-density apartment building on the three combined lots. The proposed building is out of character and scale with the existing residential neighborhood. It disregards LFUCG's Comprehensive Plan for Growing Successful Neighborhoods (Theme A) --"Promote development that is sensitive to the surrounding context."
We seek infill development that will contribute to the creation of a vibrant urban community in this interesting and history-rich area of the city.
