Hello East Bayside neighbors,
Many of you might not know (and for those of you who do) there is a proposal to change our current residential (R)-6 zone to R-7 zone in all/part of East Bayside. This proposal was initiated 6 weeks ago. There is a final Portland Planning Board meeting that we want you to know about. It will be held Tuesday, April 22nd at 7pm, City Hall, Council Chambers, 2nd floor. This will be the last meeting and opportunity to share your thoughts before the Planning Board votes and makes a recommendation to the City Council. To view the application for this proposal please visit: http://www.portlandmaine.gov/planning.htm#Current_Backup_Material
Scroll down to the 4-22-2014 meeting to East Bayside Map Amendment.
We hope that you are able to make this very important meeting. If you are unable to make it however, you can submit written comments to Rick Knowland, Senior Planner at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 874-8725. We also encourage you to contact City Councilor Kevin Donoghue at: email@example.com
Please spread the word and we look forward to seeing you all there.

The only King Tide predicted to occur during daylight hours in 2013 is expected on December 4th.
