Zoning code amendments to potentially amend the building height and density requirements of the Mixed-Use zoning overlay and the Multi-Family Residential zoning designation.  As part of this process the City may be considering the following: 

  • 40-foot building height in the Multi-Family Residential zones, which would allow for three-story buildings.  
  • 50-foot building height in the Mixed-Use zoning overlay, which would allow for four-story buildings. 
  • Density that is controlled by height, parking, landscaping, park/open space requirements of the code instead of a set number for the Mixed-Use zoning overlay.

Amendments to the Capital Facilities Element of the Comprehensive Plan to update both the 6-year and 20-year Capital Improvement Plan project lists.
