February 21, 2012

Details of the application will be posted here.

NB: At the time this post was published they were not yet available. They should appear there by the end of the week.

Section 37 Benefits

The nature of the proposed rezoning will make the project eligible for the requirement to provide community benefits in kind or in cash. Possible uses of this provision include public art, new green space or public space, childcare facilities, or affordable housing. The benefit must be tangible, like a building, rather than on-going, like operating funds for a program.
