Downtown Design Standard Overlay

City Council has met three times to discuss Planning and Zoning Commission recommendations to implement a Downtown Commercial Overlay District to promote downtown vibrancy. The purpose for which this District is created is to enhance the pedestrian-oriented business and service character in the central core to support an active, vibrant street life. To determine the best path forward, we want to collaborate with residents, businesses and property owners to discuss what vitality and vibrancy should look like downtown, how we can achieve that goal, overlay boundaries, and more. We will look to you for insights and ideas in formulating the form and function of this potential design overlay.
