Virginia Park residents are expected to discuss code enforcement and zoning, and hear from a city councilman, when their civic group meets Tuesday.

On the same night, residents living near West Shore and Gandy boulevards will discuss forming a neighborhood association.

The Virginia Park Neighborhood Association meets at 6:30 p.m. at the Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library, 3910 S. Manhattan Ave. Councilman John Dingfelder is expected to discuss new zoning policies, and Councilwomen Linda Saul-Sena and Rose Ferlita also have been invited.

Association President John Weiss said he has lobbied council members to limit the number of houses that can be built on neighborhood lots.

"I've seen this as an issue for five years," he said.
