i. The Housing and Development Committee recommends that JACC supports the preliminary design proposed by Mortenson/Legacy for the Minneapolis Public Schools New Headquarters Building to be built at 1250 West Broadway.
ii. The Housing and Development Committee recommends to the Board that JACC supports Alliance Housing/Gateway Lofts' application for variances and a conditional use permit. The variances are for a front yard set back, side yard set back, utility location/trash enclosure/arbor, and the height of the two small walls that are between W. Broadway and the drive down to the parking ramp. The project requires a conditional use permit because there are more than 5 units in the development.
iii. The Housing and Development recommends that JACC supports the Lowry Avenue Strategic Plan and proposed zoning changes for the Lowry area at the August 2010 Board meeting after Mr. Thomas Leighton's presentation.
