One of the most important agenda items in the last five years

The June CDAG board meeting is Thursday June 8th, 6pm at the Society Hill Tower  meeting room. We have one of the most important agenda items in the last five years: Discussion of Councilman Mark Squilla’s pending bill that would amend the Central Delaware Zoning Overlay.

Councilman Mark Squilla has introduced a bill to amend the CDO (Central Delaware Zoning Overlay) in several ways. Most notably, the bill would increase the maximum allowed building height, and create a new height bonus for making “through connections” to the waterfront via quasi-public driveways and other passages run through private developments.

CDAG believes the CDO can be modified in positive ways, but has grave concerns about this bill, which in its current form would undermine the Central Delaware Master Plan and the CDO.

If you share these concerns, would like to learn more, and would like to dialogue with Councilman Squilla, please come out to the June CDAG board meeting Thursday, June 8, 6-7:30PMSociety Hill Towers  Community Room (285 St. James Place – in small shopping complex next to the towers). Councilman Squilla will be on hand at 6, and this will be the first item on the agenda.

And here is the meeting agenda:

  • 6:00 – Call to order
  • 6:05 – CDO AMENDMENT LEGISLATION, with special guest Councilman Mark Squilla
  • 6:50 – Zoning presentation, 120 N. Columbus Blvd (Holiday Inn – signage)
  • 7:05 – Approval of May meeting minutes, and officer reports
  • 7:15 – Old Business

We hope to see you there!
