INFORMATION: On May 28, 2013, Runyon Woods of Woodhill, Inc.

In response to the request, staff crafted an ordinance that would allow some higher return land uses in exchange for site improvements and/or building elements that would provide essential public infrastructure and create a more vibrant and successful community. The Town adopted similar performance standard language as part of the establishment of the B-1(g) conditional zoning district (Section 15-141.4) in 2011.

On November 19, 2013, the Board of Aldermen held a public hearing on the draft amendment, which had been modified during the advisory board review process. The Board requested additional information and refinement to the proposed amendment, and since that time, staff has worked with the applicant to refine the draft ordinance to respond to Board and advisory board concerns.
