​The Planning Commission held a continued public hearing on the State Street Corridor Plan project on May 1, 2018. The commission then voted to recommend the City Council adopt two new mixed-use zones for the State Street corridor and keep four vehicle lanes on State Street.

More specifically, the Planning Commission voted to recommend the adoption of the following:

  • A new street design called the Improved Four Lane alternative. This recommendation differs from that which was recommended by staff.

  • The adoption of the two new mixed-use zones, known as Mixed Use-1 and Mixed Use-2, on State Street. The Planning Commission is also recommending that the proposal be revised to:

    • Remove a requirement in the Mixed Use-1 zone that ground-floor residential uses be separated from the sidewalk by a set setback.

    • Reduce the parking requirement for retail uses in the Mixed Use-1 and Mixed Use 2 from 1 space per 250 square feet to 1 space per 400 square feet.
