Composite Zoning Proposal

The Composite Zoning Map, published in late May 2016, combined proposed Zoning Map changes from four 2035 Comprehensive Plan Early Implementation projects: Employment Zoning, Campus Institutional Zoning, Mixed Use Zones, and Residential and Open Space Zoning. This map provided the public and the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) a fresh opportunity to review proposed Zoning Map changes in a single map.

Property owners and community members provided testimony about the Composite Zoning Map to the PSC in writing and through the Map App between late May and early July. The PSC also heard oral testimony about the map at a public hearing on July 12, 2016. The Commission then held a work session on August 2, 2016, to discuss testimony and provide direction to staff on Employment, Campus, Residential and Open Space Zoning Map changes. They held a second work session on the map on August 9, 2016, to provide direction on Mixed Use Zoning Map changes.

On August 23, 2016, the PSC voted on the new Zoning Map as a whole (Composite Zoning Map plus Major Public Trails). These recommendations are incorporated into the Recommended Draft of the Comprehensive Plan Early Implementation Package, which was forwarded to the City Council for further public review and decisions later this year.
