Another excerpt from RFP 01-1718S:

“Since 2001, the city has adopted an aggressive set of comprehensive plan changes in both 2009 and 2012 as well as an entirely new zoning code (land development regulations) in 2013. With these adoptions a variety of inconsistencies and contradictions between the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations (LDRs) compared to the guidelines became quite evident. These discrepancies lead to confusion and misunderstandings as to how the city wants to see new development and redevelopment occur along its major thoroughfare. Another change that affects the current guidelines is that the city expanded the definition and collection of roadways that qualify as a major thoroughfare. Lastly, the city has been awarded a grant to prepare city specific historic preservation design guidelines, which should be ready for adoption in early 2018.”
