The city council passed a controversial zoning amendment for the area around Harkness and Hardwood avenues. Based on a Stantec Consulting Services study on the 55-acre area for the upcoming 2040 comprehensive plan, the land south of 70th Street has been rezoned high density on the west side of Harkness Avenue and medium density to the east. It was zoned for low density residential before the Oct. 18 council meeting. It also included a small area zoned urban reserve, that allowed only one dwelling per 20 acres.
