Background
On October 11, 2005 the City Council adopted three applications (C 050453 ZMR, C 050454 ZMR, C 050455 ZMR) to modify or eliminate 21 commercial overlays throughout the borough, as recommended by the City Planning Commission (PDF Document Read the CPC Reports). By removing or modifying the selected commercial overlays, inappropriate residential and commercial development is precluded, and the lower density growth management regulations apply. In adopting these proposals, the City Council modified the area proposed to be eliminated from the commercial overlay located in Pleasant Plains. View a PDF Document map of the final adopted rezoning in Pleasant Plains.



Summary of New Zoning Boundaries
In the 21 areas where commercial overlays were eliminated or modified, future development must comply with the underlying residential regulations and the new Lower Density Growth Management requirements adopted in August 2004. These overlays were located in residential districts that limit development to one- and two-family detached and semi-detached housing. However, because the regulations in commercial overlays do not require side yards and front yards, townhouses were often built, rather than mixed-use or retail development. The 21 areas were recommended by the Growth Management Task Force.

All 21 rezoned areas are shown on the map below. Click on a location to view maps of each of the boundary changes. For each location, an illustrative map and a zoning sketch map are provided. For a precise depiction of the zoning changes (with dimensions), view the sketch map. Maps are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. The files range in size from 500k to 2mb.
