Quick order code: IP04
List Price: $30.00
Trying to get the right mix of retail, office, and residential uses in your commercially oriented mixed use districts? A number of communities are moving towards a zoning-by-floor approach, sometimes called "horizontal" zoning, which promotes ground-floor retail to maintain an active, vibrant street life and restricts professional and residential uses to the second floor or higher. Whether you are looking to add mixed use districts with ground-floor retail to your zoning code or want to tweak existing code language, this updated PAS Essential Info Packet offers staff reports, model codes and design guidelines, and a substantial collection of sample ordinances addressing ground-floor retail in commercial mixed use districts.
