The Crosstown Coalition Zoning Committee played a key role in the four year process that led to the enactment of City's current zoning code. Committee representatives attended more than forty meetings convened by the Zoning Code Commission which was tasked with revising the City's antiquated zoning code which was enacted in 1961. The memoranda authored by Crosstown volunteers addressing Zoning Code Commission issues totaled more than 200 pages.
The Coalition Zoning Committee published a list of 13 recommendations, the first of which, "Improved Participation of Community Groups" led to the codification of Registered Community Organizations. Other Coalition goals identified in the 13 item list, such as Civic Design Review, zoning category consolidation, and bonus revision also found their way into the current Code.
More recently, The Zoning Committee has addressed a myriad of zoning issues including;
* Zoning Board of Adjustment procedures,
* Inclusionary zoning designed to encourage low income housing,
* RCO regulation
* Landbank reforms
* Parking regulations
* Historic Commission procedures
