3/3/2017 DRB/PAB Joint Meeting Materials

In preparation for the March 3, 2017 joint meeting with the Design Review Board and the Planning Advisory Board we have further refined the preliminary recommendations presented to the CRA Board on January 17, 2017.  As a result, you will find attached a preliminary strikethrough and underline draft of Chapter 58, Division 30, D Downtown District; now titled Midtown Design District (MDD).

Also provided is a framework document for a Workforce Housing Floating Zone.  The intent is to limit the “floating zone” to the area defined as the “core area,” defined as those parcels bounded by 5th Avenue South, 8th Street, 7th Avenue north, and Goodlette-Frank Road.

  2. Change name to Midtown Design District.
  3. Front Setbacks: Build-to-line 10 feet.
  4. Establish Priority Streets and revise Standards for Building Design.
  5. Use: Residential only on 10th Street N/S permitted instead of conditional among others.
