Hello Cyburbia, I am a neighorhood leader and found your site while looking for pictures to take to a meeting. A large developer contacted the neighborhood leaders in the area around his property to solicit input before proceeding with an expansion plan. (How great is that!) It would require rezoning w/ conditional uses & variances. He was favorable to upgrading the facade to brick! The pics/links here were helpful.
I've made a lot of noise this last year in my city about writing a 'master plan' for my neighborhood. Our neighborhood council has had a half dozen meetings to talk out some of the ides. Now I need to put up or shut up and turn my crazy notes into a document.
