Capitol Zoning District survives Nate Bell attack

Posted By on Mon, Apr 15, 2013 at 9:41 AM

Since I've written quite a bit on the Capitol Zoning District and the effort by Rep. Nate Bell of Mena to abolish it following a dispute over fence height requirements in historic neighborhoods, I want to close the book on it. At least for this session.

Bell's bill to abolish the agency that oversees zoning issues in the Capitol and Governor's Mansion neighborhoods was withdrawn this morning and referrred for "interim study." The agency's appropriation bill, which had been placed on hold at one time, has been signed by the governor. Also: A friendly bill by Little Rock representatives to allow enforcement of CZDC rules in Little Rock district court has passed the House and pends in the Senate.
