“Streetside HOD for Mordecai?”
More info about Streetside HODs here: https://rhdc.org/sites/default/files/streetside_HOD_staff_presentation.pdf
Clover Lane Rezoning
Existing apartments will be torn down.
The rezoning application has no provision for affordable housing.
This rezoning, if approved, sets a precedent for similar proposals in Mordecai.
The conditions propose 280 apartments in a 4 story building with one level of parking underneath.
CALL TO ACTION- MARCH 21:
The owners filed final conditions last Friday and cannot change them again before this case comes before City Council on March 21.
Without a continuance, Council will vote on this rezoning on March 21st at 1pm.
Please continue to follow our MCAC social media channels and this website to get updates about next steps.
New Leaders Needed!
Do you live in the Mordecai Community? Do you feel that our community coalition is important? Please consider getting involved with the MCAC.
We have a great organization and a strong group of volunteers, but we must elect new co-chairs to continue our monthly meetings. There will be further meetings until we elect new co-chairs.
The co-chairs serve a one or two year term. Elections typically take place in January. The co-chairs plan monthly meetings and agendas, lead the meetings, and attend all MCAC functions.
We also need a chairperson or a small committee that will head up our annual Lawn Party/Community Picnic event, usually held in June at the Mordecai Historic Park.
And we'd love to bring back our Community Yard Sale Day, usually held on a Saturday in May.
Leaders must be active on our Slack workspace and communicate regularly with other CAC officers. Reach out to email@example.com if you are interested!
