Status Update Background Process Steps
On November 19, 2019, City Council decided to end the Cameron Village NCOD process. Their decision was made at the request of the original petitioners of the Cameron Village NCOD. As a result of City Council’s decision, the process will not advance to the next steps of creating an NCOD and no subsequent action will take place.
At some later date, if residents have interest in establishing an NCOD for the Cameron Village Neighborhood, a new petition must be submitted to the City Council and the process restarted from the beginning.
In May 2019, residents of the Cameron Village neighborhood submitted a petition to City Council requesting consideration for a neighborhood built environmental characteristics study.
This analysis is the first step in the potential creation of a Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District (NCOD). NCODs are an extra layer of zoning that are primarily used to alter the dimensional standards of the base zoning of properties such as lot size, lot width, building setbacks, and building height.
More information about NCDODs and other overlay zoning tools is available on the Character Preservation Overlay Districts page.
