Document Description
The DTSP Update proposes to reconfigure 11 existing districts into seven new districts with the intent to encourage and facilitate development opportunities within the DTSP area by revising development standards including increases in allowable densities, floor area ratios and building heights for certain districts. The DTSP Update is also proposing to amend the Downtown Parking Master Plan and incorporate Design Guidelines to create a "one-stop" document that would guide development in the Downtown area. Additionally, the DTSP Update provides recommendations for streetscape improvements, public amenity requirements, circulation improvements (including the realignment of portions of 6th Street and Walnut Avenue) and mobility enhancements within the DTSP area.
