Apartment Buildings Text Amendment

Text Amendment 2020.07

Request: a request to amend Chapter 5 of the Land Development Code (LDC) to encourage the apartment building form within the Wilkinson Boulevard corridor and prohibit the form in other areas of the city.

Background: The city council has directed staff to prepare this amendment, which would prohibit the use of the “apartment building” form (Section 4.4) in all areas of the city except the Wilkinson Boulevard corridor.

Council stated:
• This building form is more appropriate within this corridor because it will support density needed for the future light rail project; and
• Multi-family apartment units are still possible within other zones; however, they will need to be incorporated within a mixed-use building form that consists of non-residential uses at street level.

Project Status:

  • November 19, 2020:  Planning Board Meeting -Tabled until December Planning Board Meeting (Dec. 15, 2020) 
  • City Council Public Hearing - To Be Determined
