Department of City Planning Director Marisa Lago on the City Council Land Use and Zoning Committees’ Votes in Favor of the Jerome Avenue Neighborhood Plan 

March 7, 2018 - Yesterday’s City Council committee votes on the Jerome Avenue Neighborhood Plan mark a big step forward toward making this community more safe, healthy and vibrant. This Plan is the result of hard work and collaboration among residents, local small businesses, community institutions, elected officials – the full gamut of local stakeholders. Implementation of the Plan will transform Jerome Avenue into a lively corridor full of affordable housing, open space, retail, schools and other community facilities. I thank the City Council, and especially the leadership of Councilmembers Vanessa Gibson and Fernando Cabrera, for making this good plan even better.
