4. SOUTH EUCLID REFERENDUM
The property is zoned for residential use only. It cannot be developed unless the zoning is changed. It is up to the South Euclid Planning Commission and City Council to decide whether or not to change the zoning.
If South Euclid City Council votes to permit development of the property, then a petition will be circulated to put the issue on the ballot. By putting it on the ballot the voters of South Euclid can decide what they want for their community. For details, please see the Referendum Factsheet attached below.
If you can help circulate a petition, please email email@example.com and Kathy will get back to you.
