For a quick overview of the Zoning and Sign Code process, please click on the below image to review the brochure.
The Community Residential (CR), Urban Commercial (UC), and Neighborhood Commercial (NC) zoning districts were removed from the proposed Ordinance and consolidated into the Neighborhood Residential (NR) and the latter two zones into Suburban Commercial (SC). All of those properties will be rezoned.
The Planned Unit Development (PUD) Zoning District was modified to become an Overlay zone. Staff has matched the existing land uses in these zones to the proposed Zoning Districts to better reflect what is on the ground today. For example, all of the properties on North Edge Trail are currently zoned Planned Unit Development and makes it difficult to determine what are the underlying zone regulations. These properties will be zoned to Neighborhood Residential (NR) with a Planned Unit Development Overlay District that will alert Staff to verify any approved setback exemptions that are different from the proposed Zoning Ordinance.
Other properties may be rezoned to better reflect what is on the ground today. For example, the Subway property (500 West Verona Avenue) is currently zoned Neighborhood Residential (NR), which prohibits restaurants. This property is proposed to be rezoned to Suburban Commercial (SC), which allows restaurants. There are several other properties that are proposed to be rezoned to Central Commercial (CC) Zoning District as these were designated to be rezoned in the Downtown Mobility and Development Plan.
