The Brush Avenue rezoning cleared its final hurdle, earning the approval of the City Council last week.
On Wednesday, February 15, the City Council adopted the zoning changes, rezoning a three-block area between Ferry Point Park and the Hutchinson River Parkway from R4 to R4A.
R4 districts permit all types of housing, including multifamily attached buildings, with a maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.9, while an R4A district limits development to one- and two-family detached housing with the same maximum FAR of 0.9.
Councilman James Vacca spoke before the City Council last week, calling for its passage, and was delighted that the rezoning was adopted so quickly after he and the Ferry Point Civic Association pushed for it to be expedited.
