Downtown Development District
The proposed Downtown Development District (DDD) amendments will modify the Regulating Plan map, amend certain development standards for the Civic Center site, add development standards for two existing sub-districts and correct text errors.
The Civic Center site is bounded to the north by Civic Center Drive, to the east by South Claiborne Street, to the south by Canal Street, and to the west by South Lawrence Street.
The proposed amendments will guide the redevelopment of the Civic Center site and are intended to revitalize the existing entertainment venue and add office, retail, lodging, residential and related supporting facilities as allowable uses on the site.
The amendment of the Regulating Plan map will establish T-3 and T-5.2 sub-districts on the Civic Center site. Modifications to the development standards for these sub-districts specific to the Civic Center site are proposed. Changes to the allowed uses for these sub-districts specific to the Civic Center site are also proposed.
Additional proposed amendments will further define existing Municipal and Open sub-districts, establishing use and development criteria.
