The objective of the proposed amendments is to strengthen Downtown Highland Park and create a more residential, pedestrian-oriented environment leveraging the area's many assets.
The City Council initiated a discussion on May 27th to provide a more in-depth look at the proposal. The first presentation gave an overview of the proposal and the Plan Commission's recommendation to City Council. The second presentation on July 14th went into more detail about the reasons behind the Zoning Map changes and new development regulations.
Upcoming presentations will focus on specific changes, such as residential density, building height, parking, urban design, connectivity, and planned development review triggers.
