Lanier Heights 
has been zoned R-5-B for several generations.

The downzoners want to reduce that zoning to R-4 (or possibly some kind of special zoning overlay) in order to limit the potential for future residential development in the neighborhood.

Neighbors Against Downzoning formed in response to actions by the downzoners because we did not want our zoning rights reduced. 

A few respondents to our ANC CANDIDATE POLL and some supporters of our petition have raised the question of "UPZONING" residential neighborhoods as another option for the future of our city and Lanier Heights. 

Neighbors Against Downzoning has no position on the question of UPZONING at present. But here are some of the zoning possibilities for residential neighborhoods like Lanier Heights.
