Pulse Corridor Plan Rezonings

One of the immediate goals for implementation of the Pulse Corridor Plan is to rezone the six priority station areas in the Plan: Cleveland Street, Science Museum, Allison Street, Arts District, Main Street Station, and Orleans. The City has begun the city-initiated rezoning process based on the guidance provided in the Pulse Corridor Plan, including a series of public open houses.

The Monroe Ward and Scotts's Addition Neighborhoods are also part of the Pulse Corridor Plan rezonings.
