Land Use & Development
Plaza Midwood's Land Use Group meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at The Vine Fellowship Hall (2101 Belvedere).
Meetings are open to all. Property Owners, Renters, Developers and Neighborhood enthusiasts are all encouraged to attend and participate.
If you have any land use questions or concerns, feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Plaza Midwood Land Use Group does not have a formal set of rules or guidelines in offering approval or disapproval for a project, there are some basic priorities when analyzing development:
- We embrace principals of walk-ability that encourage pedestrian engagement and safety
- We embrace the city’s long term efforts to concentrate development and density in centers and corridors.
- We embrace smaller incremental developments that add variety to our commercial streetscape.
- We value the eclectic aesthetic in our commercial area and therefore do not dictate adherence to a specific architectural style.
- We encourage the reuse of structures.
- We value diversity of housing stock, diversity of housing occupants, and housing affordability
Opinions of the Land Use Group are delivered to the PMNA board for final approval and then may be submitted to city or county officials. PMNA and Land Use opinions do not override existing zoning laws, however, and are simply designated as a form of community support or objection.
