Land Use Highlights

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

The community vision for land use includes:

  • more walkable neighborhoods/neighborhood centers
  • a variety of housing options, shops, services
  • community space

The Neighborhood Plan policies intend to support development that is:

  • well designed
  • compatible with existing surroundings
  • creates an active and accessible corridor

The neighborhood-specific draft code amendments intend to:

  • promote pedestrian-friendly design, through standards such as:
    • lower the maximum building height in Community Commercial (C-2) zoned areas to 60 feet (5 stories)
    • add design standards in C-2, such as street facing facades and weather protection
    • add transition standards such as buffering and setbacks for C-2 development next to Low Density Residential (R-1) zoned areas
  • prohibit the establishment of certain uses in C-2, such as storage facilities and certain motor vehicle and machinery sales
