Mayor Bill Purcell signed the Salem Gardens substitute bill that codifies the Planning Commission's recommendation that 3 properties of 6 along 6th Avenue at Garfield Street be re-zoned for single family homes to balance out the exploding number of duplexes in Salemtown. He signed it on Friday.
By the way, I met a couple at the Germantown/Salemtown social over the weekend who own the corner lot across 6th from Salem Gardens. They told me that their plans are to build a zero-lot line structure (zero-lot line = cluster housing development in which individual dwelling units are placed on separately platted lots). One popular source says zero lots lines assume dwindling single-family urban lots and cater mainly to baby boom empty nesters.
