City Commission to hold  public hearing for adoption of  Mobility Oriented Development land use cate

Includes review of new zoning district to promote mobility initiatives


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.”  

Media inquiries may be directed to Melissa Wissel, Communications Director, at 904.293.3307.
