On July 29, Councilmember Koretz’s motion to amend the Baseline Mansionization Ordinance came before the City Council’s Planning and Land Use committee. The motion’s intent is to curb oversized development of undersized lots. The room was filled with supportive community members and leaders of neighborhood councils from around the city.
