Urban mixed-use zone districts would allow the city to identify existing commercial corridors and centers for appropriate mixed-use development to encourage attainable housing. It’s founded upon the concepts of “new urbanism” in an effort to attract compact and diverse mixed-use developments that provide housing and workplaces within close proximity.

The meeting will cover the following topics:

  • Comprehensive Plan vs. Zoning
  • History of what the City Commission has already approved
  • Proposed density bonus when attainable housing is provided on-site
  • Development and design standards for mixed-use zone districts
  • Development and design standards for commercial centers
