                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to application no. N 190236 ZRM (Pre. L.U. No. 414), a zoning text amendment to establish and reduce the allowable maximum building heights in the C6-4, R8A, and R7D districts mapped along portions of Park Avenue;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-dof the City Charter;
