Drafting the New Zoning
City staff is working closely with the Central Business District Association (CBDA) to draft the new zoning ordinances along with design guidelines that demonstrate site, building and sign designs envisioned for the area.
City Council received a briefing from staff during their informal session on July 2, 2013 where staff introduced the draft ordinance for the Central Business Core District along with two sets of design guidelines. (See links on right.)
The Planning Commission received a briefing from staff during their informal session on Wednesday, August 14 where staff gave a presentation on the draft ordinance.
A Planning Commission Workshop was held October 17 to demonstrate case studies for potential development scenarios under the draft CBCD zoning regulations.
A City Council Briefing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 3 during their informal session. This will be available to view online via the City's Media Center
Approximately 50 people attended a Public Meeting and Workshop August 15, 2013 at the Sandler Center for Performing Arts.The meeting began with a presentation and overview of the draft zoning regulations. Following the presentation, staff answered questions and received comments from attendees.
In response to comments received, staff has revised the Zoning Ordinance and Design Guidelines.
See links on the right side of this page. As we continue to work with our stakeholders, we will make additional changes to the draft documents. Each draft will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
