Commission OKs Tremont rezoning

The western edge of a nearly 25-acre site, at right, that’s proposed to be
down-zoned from industrial to retail in Cleveland is seen at the bottom
of Literary Street hill. This is also the edge of residential development
in Tremont, visible just beyond the Towpath Trail’s bridge. At left is the
Electric Gardens apartments developed by J Roc which is seeking the
zoning change (Google). CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM.

A nearly 25-acre area of land on a hillside at the north end of Tremont was recommended for rezoning by the City Planning Commission yesterday to allow more development closer to the Cuyahoga River. But the rezoning, primarily from general industry to general retail to accommodate new residential, neighborhood shops and restaurants, was opposed by the industries currently using those properties. Planning commission members responded that the rezoning allows existing uses to continue and that the rezoning is consistent with the city’s land use plans, namely its Vision For The Valley.
