On Monday, September 26, 2022, at the regularly scheduled City Commission meeting, two ordinances will come before the commission for second reading that would create a new land use category and a new zoning district, ultimately allowing for higher density, transit-oriented development in the city limits.
With the adoption of Ordinance 2022-14, the Mobility Oriented Development (MOD) Future Land Use Category will be inserted into the Comprehensive Plan and Ordinance 2022-15 creates a new compatible zoning district, also called a Mobility Oriented Development (MOD).
The city’s Planning and Building Director, Amy Skinner presented the ordinances outlining the proposed changes at the July 11, 2022, City Commission meeting. Skinner also provided a comprehensive discussion paper explaining the need, demand, impacts, and benefits of an MOD.
“In response to recent discussions at the state and regional levels, the city is proactively creating a future land use category and zoning district in order to be able to allow for such development,” Skinner commented. “This is inevitably coming, so we are preparing now.”
