Neighbors and friends,

We are reaching out today to ask you to participate in a short online survey (less than 10 minutes!) related to BIG changes the City is planning for our neighborhood. 

As you may have heard, the City’s Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA) calls for dramatically increasing the allowable building height in much of our Madison-Miller Park neighborhood: converting existing single-family areas to multifamily, four-story structures, with no requirements for green space, trees or front and back yards.  

More than 200 of your neighbors have joined together to respond to the City’s HALA plans. Our purpose is to support HALA’s goals for diversity, livability and affordability in a way that maintains the neighborhood’s traditional beauty and character. We recently sent a letter outlining our guiding principles to the City; you can read this letter along with our Guiding Principles and Map with our alternate zoning proposal on our blog at Principles & Alternate Proposal Map. We are also exploring the feasibility of establishing Residential Parking Zones (RPZs) in areas where parking for residents is especially difficult.

To get as broad a perspective as possible, we have constructed a short survey that you can complete on your computer or mobile device. The survey will take ten minutes or less to answer, and is anonymous. The survey has two objectives: 1. To better understand our community’s opinions on density and affordability; 2. Get direct feedback on parking issues on your street and those directly around you.

Please make your voice heard. It’s crucial to clearly understand what our priorities for zoning are as a community. The more voices we have, the more powerful our message will be to the City: changes to our community need to be thoughtful and retain the livability, diversity, and affordability of our neighborhood!

Your opinion matters! Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. Please do it today. 

Help us spread the word by forwarding this email to as many neighbors as you can.

Thank you,

Your neighbors from the Madison-Miller Park Community group
