Agenda for the June 2, 2022 Special Meeting of the Hancock Neighborhood Association

Hello Neighbors,

I hope you’re all having a good Memorial Day weekend. I've decided to call a special called meeting for Thursday, June 2nd, at 7 pm so we can hopefully adopt a new resolution regarding the proposed Cady Lofts development in advance of the City Council meeting on June 9th. We'll conduct the meeting on Zoom and the meeting information is below.

Here's the Agenda for the Meeting:

  1. HNA Cady Lofts Update
  2. Resolution Presentation and Discussion
  3. Vote

We will post a draft of the proposed resolution early this week to the HNA listserv so that everyone has a chance to review it in advance of the meeting.

Only dues-paying members of the HNA can vote at the meeting. If you haven't paid your 2022 dues yet, the HNA join section provides information on how to pay online or using the mail.

Many of you are already familiar with the 100-unit, single-room occupancy, Cady Lofts project proposed for 1004, 1006, 1008, East 39th St and the associated zoning amendment and zoning changes.

There have been several meetings about this Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) project for people experiencing homelessness they’ve proposed including:

  • March 16: HNA General Meeting
  • April 7: City-led Community Engagement Meeting
  • April 28: HNA Zoning Committee meeting
  • April 28: HNA Special Called Meeting for Cady Lofts Resolution, 87% of attendees voted to adopt a resolution supporting affordable housing/PSH but opposing the zoning change.

The Zoning FLUM amendment and zoning change case were heard on Tuesday this week at the Planning Commission. Despite objections from HNA and from the community (there was also strong community support for the changes), the Commissioners unanimously rejected our postponement request to allow time for experts to review the change and its impact. The Commissioners then voted to unanimously approve the FLUM amendment and zoning change, setting the issue to be heard for the first time at City Council on June 9th.

Cady Lofts was items B6 and B7 on the agenda. The Postponement discussion started at the 19-minute mark and the actual zoning case started 53 minutes into the meeting.
