Join us to provide your comments on draft Downtown Development Code changes.

Issues include floor area ratio (the minimum amount of building required on each lot), streets and sidewalks, minimum parking standards and building design standards.

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.
