Covington's New Neighborhood Development Code Wants to Ease Development, Protect Charm
"Making development easier while protecting the city's charm - that’s the goal of Covington’s new neighborhood development code," reports Mariel Carbone.
"Covington has been changing dramatically in recent years, and with this new code, officials say they want to ensure that future changes preserve its 'look' and 'feel,'" adds Carbone.
Christopher Meyers, Covington historic preservation officer, is quoted extensively throughout the article to explain the reasoning behind the city's goals in establishing a new zoning code. Dalton Belcher, city zoning specialist, is quoted to explain how the new code will achieve those goals.
An 18-month process culminated recently in a public hearing where the public had a chance to weigh in on the proposed code.
