3. Remind me what this Community Plan is again?
Since 2002, the Planning Department has been working with Glen Park’s
residents and merchants to create the Glen Park Community Plan. The Plan
presents a vision and set of objectives and policies that recognize Glen
Park’s unique character and seek to enhance the neighborhood’s special
qualities and function.

The Community Plan seeks to:
* protect and reinforce the character of the neighborhood commercial
district
* resolve challenges caused by the area’s massive vehicle infrastructure
* enhance pedestrian and transit movement
* improve the area’s mix of open spaces
* create connections to Glen Canyon Park and surrounding neighborhoods

The Plan recommends:
* modifications to the neighborhood commercial zoning classification to
support a transit-oriented commercial district
* streetscape and pedestrian amenities
* potential open space opportunities
* review of future development for compatibility with the neighborhood’s
scale and distinctive character

That’s the latest and greatest.
Thanks!
Jon
