At 5:30pm, a public hearing will be held to consider the request of the Detroit Planning & Development Department on behalf of Motor City Blight Busters and CHN Housing Partners to rezone 48 parcels generally bounded by Santa Clara Street, Bentler Street, Orchard Street, and Lahser Road from R1 (Single Family Residential) to R3 (Low Density Residential). 

The proposed map amendment is to permit the development of a multi-family residential development. The use is not allowed in the current zoning district, but is permitted by-right in the proposed district.
