In early 2016 we will release our proposed zoning recommendations for public review. Our recommendations would allow greater height and density in blocks surrounding the light rail station. They will also incorporate the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda’s Mandatory Housing Affordability programs, which will require developers to set aside affordable units or pay fees to provide for affordable housing.
We will also release recommended updates to the existing neighborhood design guidelines to better align them with our proposed zoning and desired neighborhood character.
We will invite comments on both the zoning recommendations and neighborhood design guidelines. Based on those comments, we’ll revise the proposals before sending to Council. If you would like to receive updates and notification of public meetings, please submit your email in the sidebar to join our mailing list.
