Planning Commission Approves Buffer Zones

The proposed downtown historic district buffer zones passed a major milestone tonight, with the city planning commission passing the ordinance amendments unanimously (with councilwoman Sandra Moon abstaining). The only government hurdle that's left is approval by the city council, which should happen in a month or two.

A text description along with a map of the planned amendments' final draft can be found on the city Planning Department website.

Isn't Sandra Moon the one that said when they were originally happened this debate that buildings over 8 stories blocked the sun?

I don't remember her making that comment, but I wouldn't be surprised if she did.

BTW, she abstained to "give the public the opportunity to talk" to her before the council vote.
