SUMMARY:

 

The development of urban design standards has been identified as a key redevelopment project within each of the City of Pensacola’s adopted community redevelopment plans. The City of Pensacola Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) approved the FY17/18 CRA Work Plan on April 10, 2017, which authorized the development, adoption and codification of design standards for each of the City’s three redevelopment areas. On October 9, 2017, the CRA authorized the CRA Chairperson to negotiate and execute a contract with DPZ CoDESIGN, the top-ranked firm selected in response to RFQ No. 17-043 to prepare the standards.

 

DPZ CoDESIGN launched the project in early January 2018.  From February 2018 through April 2018, an extensive public input process included a series of charrettes, public workshops, input sessions, presentations and a written comment period. For reference purposes, a full list of public outreach and input opportunities, as well as, comments received and corresponding responses are attached.

 

The drafted overlay document was released on May 31, 2018.  On June 12, 2018 and September 18, 2018 the Planning Board held public hearings and recommended adoption with modifications.

 

Following the Planning Board hearing, the proposed overlay was presented to the Eastside Redevelopment Board (ERB) and the Westside Redevelopment Board (WRB) on July 11, 2018 and July 24, 2018, respectively. Both Boards recommended adoption of the proposed overlay as presented.

 

The CRA recommended adoption of the overlay during its meeting on January 14, 2019.

 

Since the CRA’s recommendation in January, staff engaged the consultant to conduct a final thorough review of the document in preparation for public hearing and adoption. Upon review, several areas requiring clarification and alignment with the underlying zoning were identified. The recommended clarifying language is contained within the attached ordinance in strike-through and underline format. It is recommended that City Council consider this language for incorporation into the adopted document.
