Highland Park Zoning Study
(Case 2008-161)


In September 2007, Chattanooga City Council passed a resolution directing the Regional Planning Agency to conduct a zoning study for certain properties in the Highland Park community.

Previously, the Highland Park community underwent zoning studies in 1991 and 1996 which resulted in much of the area being rezoned to R-1 Residential with some portions of the study area remaining R-2 Residential, R-3 Residential, R-3 Moderate Density Zone, and R-4 Special Zone.

The 2008 zoning study was used to determine if the current zoning supported and encouraged current and future land uses which were consistent with the development character of the neighborhood.

The study area included those residentially-zoned properties and those properties zoned R-4 within the area of South Willow Street to the east, E. Main Street to the south, South Holtzclaw Avenue to the west, and McCallie Avenue to the north.

The recommendations of the zoning study were presented to the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission
on Monday, November 10th. Planning Commission recommended approval of the zoning study recommendations. The recom-
mendations of the zoning study were heard at the public hearing of the Chattanooga City Council on December 9th and December 16th. The recommendations of the zoning study received final approval and certain properties, as detailed in the study and Case 2008-1661, were rezoned.
