Use master plans to rezone an entire area and allow design and use flexibility that meets community planning goals. Planning at a master plan level allows agencies to include community amenities and affordable housing in contrast to the limited context of single-site developments.
Pursue funding opportunities (such as federal or regional grants) to develop specific plans that can promote development patterns consistent with the City’s and community’s visions and provide by-right entitlements.
- Allow phasing of development, and allow standards that differ from current zoning, if appropriate.
- Approval of master plans can be made contingent on infill development uses not generally enumerated in traditional zones, such as parks, neighborhood-serving retail, and community gardens
