The city’s master plan prescribes a future vision for land use patterns in the community. The zoning ordinances prescribe the regulatory requirements governing the proposed land use. The city’s Small Business Development team is mapping the various commercial districts in the city, so we can identify where current districts are physically located, which businesses exist there, and what might be missing. By doing so, we can identify which services are needed in a commercial district to support local neighbors. We can then ensure offerings align with our vision for future land use in the district, and meet regulatory compliance.
