Support of Central Street Retail

On March 9, 2007, CSNA adopted the following Position:

Emphasis of Retail

CSNA favors re-zoning of the retail districts on Central Street and along Green Bay Road, north of Lincoln, that will preserve the low-rise, pedestrian-oriented, retail character of the districts. CSNA favors a requirement of at least 50’ depth for all retail, and is opposed to new mixed-use construction that utilizes the first floor for parking. CSNA would support an overlay district to accomplish these purposes.

Note: This Position was reflected in the law passed by the City Council on January 28, 2008. See Summary of Central Street Plan Zoning Ordinances.
