"This is a meeting for anyone and everyone to come and listen to and participate in the latest proposed version of the 'Big Box' code. Comments and suggestions are very welcome.", Susan Wells, President Southwest Neighborhood. (See 'Related Content', and 'More info from Susan Wells' below)

The purpose of the ("Big Box") project is to create regulations that ensure commercial development meets the community's vision and to ensure high-quality design for retail and other commercial development along arterial streets in the corridor district. The Code regulations will result in commercial developments that:

  • Are attractive with high quality design and materials
  • Promote a sense of community and livability
  • Support the City's sustainability goals
  • Address safety concerns

The purpose of this forum is to present information on:

  • The proposed land use district location changes for Community Commercial and Moderate Commercial
  • The Draft Commercial Design Guidelines and Standards Code

The meeting will include an open house at 6:30PM followed by a presentation/discussion session starting at 6:45PM.

Participants will have the chance to review and comment on the latest proposals regarding residential compatibility. Each event will address different topics within the same project. Those who would like to attend can drop in any time between 4:30PM and 7PM

Last year, we discussed issues regarding making new development and existing development more compatible with each other and weighed alternative ways to address those issues. Now it is time to develop a preferred approach to addressing each of the following issues:

  • Height and bulk of new homes
  • Transitions (between single-family homes and more intense uses such as commercial uses, apartments or condominiums)
  • Flag lots (homes built behind other homes)
  • Buffers and screening between developments
  • How small-lot subdivisions are reviewed
  • Quality/appearance of fences along streets

Property owners, business owners, residents and other interested parties are invited for a workshop at 6:30PM Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2009 at City Hall. The meeting will be in Rooms 2A and 2B on the second floor of City Hall

Examples of innovative housing include:

  • Cottages (often facing courtyards)
  • Neighborhoods with a mix of housing types, such as single-family homes, duplexes, and tri-plexes
  • Cluster developments that group housing onto one part of a site to preserve open space or natural features on the rest of the site

The City is considering changing its Development Code to allow innovative housing types or configurations
