Purpose: The “PR” (Planned Redevelopment) District provides for the reuse and redevelopment of existing development in a way that is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and current market trends. This district is a planned zoning district that creates incentives to redevelop sites that have obsolete design or site layouts, taking advantage of existing infrastructure and encouraging economic development, new housing or shopping opportunities, and contemporary approaches to development. The PR district accomplishes this by:
•Allowing deviations from certain infrastructure or zoning standards that are appropriate for new development, but that are potentially excessive or unnecessary on sites that have existing infrastructure.
The “PR” District implements the following Comprehensive Plan policies:
•LUCC-7.1: High Quality Design. Encourage economically reasonable efforts toward high quality architecture, urban design and site design. Use design guidelines as a tool for new development and redevelopment. Consider the desired context and character of existing neighborhoods and commercial centers.
•LUCC-7.4: Alternative Zoning Techniques. Consider alternative zoning techniques within … redeveloping areas to elevate the quality of urban design, and encourage higher densities. This may include codes that emphasize the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks, and de-emphasize regulation of land use.
•Principle HN-2: Support housing … redevelopment that includes a variety of housing types and opportunities to enable a wide range of economic levels, age groups, and lifestyles to live within a community.
•ESR-2.1, 2.4 and 2.5: Encourage the use of energy-efficient lighting, appliances, and other device, alternative energy, and recyclable building materials / building materials with recycled content in redevelopment.
•M-2.3: Regional Transportation Impacts Assessed. Land use … redevelopment decisions should consider the effects of off-site regional traffic impacts and those land use assumptions of adjoining jurisdictions.
•CF-1.3: Adequate Public Facilities. When permitting additional … redevelopment, the City will consider whether public facilities and services are adequate to reasonably maintain current levels of service or service standards given the impacts of such additional development, or whether committed funding sources for such adequate facilities are sufficient to ensure their provision in a timely fashion.
