Join us to discuss the preferred approaches to removing obstacles to Downtown development by changing the Development Code.

Issues to be explored include floor-area ratio (development intensity), parking and street design.

The Downtown Plan Review project seeks to remove obstacles to Downtown development while retaining the vision of Downtown as: a center for jobs and housing; a thriving and unique entertainment, nightlife and shopping district; and a visually interesting place with buildings and streetscapes of high design quality.

A document that describes the preferred approaches to addressing Downtown Development Code issues is available on the project website.

Residents, business owners, property owners and other interested parties are invited to attend and comment on the proposals.
