Strategy LU3.2: Implement flexible land development policies and codes to promote redevelopment.

Strategy Description

Adopt overlay districts that provide flexibility in the types and intensity of uses allowed in areas prime for redevelopment. Other strategies include:

  • Allow shared parking, and reduce minimum parking requirements
  • Allow larger buildings (maximum floor-to-area ratios)
  • Seek to eliminate municipal subsidies for vacant land development. Ensure that growth pays its own way.
