The Proposed Draft of the Mixed Use Zones Project was released on March 22, 2016. Project staff gave a presentation to the Planning and Sustainability Commission that same day. Commissioners learned about proposed zoning and code changes in commercial zones that would address community concerns about the scale of new development, transitions to adjacent neighborhoods and the need for more affordable housing.
