Flagstaff City Council weighed in at Tuesday night’s meeting on long awaited zoning changes meant to lower the height of buildings in some parts of the city and more closely regulate large student-focused housing developments.

The majority of Council was supportive of the changes, and of city staff continuing efforts to get public input in the affected parts of the community.

Among the proposed changes is lowering the maximum building height from 60 feet to 45 feet in the community commercial zone, which covers sections of the city north of downtown, much of the Southside and the majority of the Sunnyside neighborhood.
