About the Old City District RCO

The Old City District Registered Community Organization (RCO) provides a public forum to discuss zoning variance applications occurring within the OCD boundary area. RCO meeting attendees who reside within the OCD boundary area have the opportunity to express their opinions by registering a vote of support or opposition for the requested zoning variance or special exception. It is important to note that RCOs are recipients of early notification of zoning appeals and are not given any special privileges before the ZBA. Individual community members and/or organizations are entitled to testify at ZBA hearings or to send letters to the ZBA regardless of RCO status.
