Update 9/4/15 @ 12:25pm:  The Cincinnati Planning Commission has rejected a proposal that could have slowed development activities in Hyde Park for several months.  

The commission voted unanimously Friday morning against a zoning study of the entire neighborhood, and implementing an interim development control overlay district, or IDC, during such a review.  That would have meant any project proposed after the overlay was established would have to go through extra scrutiny before moving forward. 

Cincinnati officials are seeking public input as they prepare to update the city's zoning code and map.  Hearings are continuing throughout this month.  

The documents guide where different kinds of businesses and homes can be built, what they can be used for, and how large they can be.
