If passed by City Council, this new overlay will effectively end the growth of Riverside Avondale as a walkable vibrant urban neighborhood. With draconian measures calling for the closure of all new restaurants at 8pm, provisions making it illegal to sell food to go, and limiting all future restaurants to 60 seats in the Historic Residential Character Areas, there has never been as anti business a piece of legislation in the history of the city. Here, for consideration is the proposed new map and ordinance.

The existing overlay map.

The proposed new zoning map, limiting all commercial activity to the designated areas.  A walkability killing measure in and of itself.
