In January 2018, City Council initiated an update to the 2009 Downtown Plan (1-GP-2018) to assess and align the plan with other plans that have been adopted since 2009, and adjust for changes in the downtown business, residential and retail markets. Furthermore, the City initiated a text amendment (1-TA-2018) to align the Downtown, Downtown Overlay, and PBD zoning districts with the proposed changes to the Downtown Plan.
Staff has updated the draft Old Town Character Area Plan below to incorporate feedback to date (April 6, 2018). This includes an updated redline version – which notes changes from the 2009 plan to this draft – as well as the Implementation Chapter. Although initial feedback is included in this draft of the plan, your input remains paramount to the process. Please review and comment on the proposed plan changes and draft text amendment language below. You can comment on the entire plan, the individual sections of the plan, as well as the draft text amendment language (1-TA-2018) through May 18, 2018. All comments received will be forwarded to Planning Commission and City Council for their consideration.
In terms of the process moving forward, please review the Stay Involved section below as the dates concerning Planning Commission and City Council have changed.
