June 7, 2006 - A public meeting will be
held beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 15 to discuss new form-based
coding - an alternative to traditional zoning - for the South Waterfront.
The meeting will specifically discuss the impact of the draft
code for the South Waterfront on the Old Sevier and Scottish Pike
neighborhoods. The meeting will be held at the South Waterfront
Drop-In Center, located at 906 Sevier Ave.
Form-based codes encourage a greater mix of uses and housing types
and place stronger emphasis on the design of the public spaces than
The three-mile long South Waterfront has been divided into seven
districts, with each district having its own opportunities, scale
and character that should be preserved and enhanced with new development.
