CRA URBAN DESIGN OVERLAY REVISIONS

end

 

body

SUMMARY:

                                          

The Urban Design Overlay was adopted by the City Council in 2019 to provide development standards for the CRA neighborhoods not covered by a special design review board.  The intent of these design standards was to preserve and maintain the traditional walkable, urban pattern and character of Pensacola’s community redevelopment area neighborhoods.

 

Implementation of the overlay has highlighted several areas in which the ordinance can be tweaked to make its application smoother for builders and developers.  Staff is drafting revisions for submission to the Planning Board at its November meeting.  Upon Planning Board’s approval, it is anticipated that the proposed revisions will be forwarded to City Council in December.

 

PRIOR ACTION:                     

 

May 30, 2019 - City Council adopted Ordinance #13-19
