Building, Land Use, & Housing (BLUH) Committee

September 20, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Building, Land Use, & Housing (BLUH – pronounced “blue”) meets the third Thursday of the month, 6:30 PM, at the Elliot Park Recreation Center (1000 E. 14th Street). The BLUH committee oversees the quality of Elliot Park’s physical infrastructure. Land use, property disposition, housing and development issues are regular agenda items at BLUH committee meetings. Zoning variances and conditional use permits required by the city for property developments are considered and voted on by BLUH. BLUH also provides visions for the future of Elliot Park through various task forces that focus on planning, public improvements, urban design guidelines and property development. Passed motions from the BLUH committee are forwarded to the EPNI Board of Directors for consideration.

All are welcome to attend the BLUH meetings. If you live, work, or own property in Elliot Park, you are a voting member of BLUH.
