The area plan is the product of a yearlong effort to formulate land use, design and transportation policies for the Park Road corridor, between Dilworth and South Park (see map HERE). When adopted by City Council, it will be used as a guide to evaluate zoning and development proposals, as well as future public infrastructure investments.
Some of the key land use policies in the draft include:
Encourage a mix of well-designed land uses to create a neighborhood-scale mixed-use district in the Activity Center
Encourage infill development at an appropriate scale with the surrounding neighborhoods
Limit infill development in the Wedge Area to protect the character of the existing single-family neighborhoods
Provide bicycle and pedestrian connections on ROWs that were not developed as streets
Minimize impacts to the tree canopy
Integrate functional open space into new development
Property owners in the area covered by the plan are strongly encouraged to review the full proposal to understand the impacts on their property and any future redevelopment prospects. REBIC has identified a number of areas of concern with the draft language, and will be on hand next week to represent the interests of the real estate industry.
