We are pleased to report that on February 8, 2018, the LFUCG Council unanimously voted to adopt amendments to the B-6P (Planned Shopping Center) zone.
The amendments modernize the zone and enable greater redevelopment opportunities along our main corridors. A central focus of the 2018 Goals & Objectives is redevelopment of our major corridors and encouraging transit-oriented/multi-modal transit development, which is supported with these amendments. The stated intent of the proposed amendments is as follows:
To achieve the stated intent, the primary proposed amendments are as follows:
Importantly, the amendments also provide protections for existing neighborhoods that abut or adjoin B-6P developments, including buffering and screening. However, whether or not neighborhoods are provided necessary protections will depend upon each specific development plan and how the Ordinance is implemented.
We applaud the Staff, Planning Commission, and Council for hitting the ground running on implementing the 2018 Goals & Objectives.
