Midtown Coalition of Neighborhood Associations

The Midtown Coalition board mailed a brief questionnaire to all City Council candidates, asking for them to respond to proposed zoning reforms.  The proposed reforms are intended to give neighborhoods more control over future development. Click the links below to see what was mailed to the candidates.

Candidates from six of the nine council districts replied to the questionnaire.  Replies were received from candidates in all of five of the districts in which Midtown Coalition member neighborhoods are located (2, 3, 4, 7, and 9), as well as from district 1, which contains many older neighborhoods like those in the Midtown Coalition.  No replies were received from candidates in districts 5, 6, or 8, which consist mainly of newer suburban neighborhoods.

Most of the candidates who replied expressed support for the reforms discussed in the questionnaire, either categorically or with some qualification. A number of candidates phoned to ask questions about these issues.  The amount of interest in the topic is encouraging.

The replies have been grouped by district.  The replies to each question have been placed together for ease of comparison.  As you read, however, keep in mind, that the candidates are not responding to one another; no candidate had advance knowledge of any other candidate's replies.  Here are the links to each set of replies, along with a list of those who replied, and a list of Midtown Coalition neighborhoods in that district:

District 1: Reply received from Louie D. Moore.
