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
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
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.
