Plan Update
As our City grows and moves further into its second century, we want to ensure our Olde Town Subarea Plan reflects our community's vision for our historic downtown.

By working with community members and other stakeholders, we will revisit the plan to see what needs to be updated to maintain Olde Town as a vibrant community into the future.

Highlights of Proposals
The City’s Planning Policy Commission is currently studying several proposed updates to the plan, including:

  • Lowering the allowed building heights on Front and Sunset 
  • Developing design standards for areas zoned for single family homes and duplexes. 
  • Changing the Olde Town subarea boundary (map in the proposed updates)

Why update/change the subareas?

Subarea boundaries are simply a way of easily identifying areas of the City. If your property is removed, you would either be located in another existing subarea or a new subarea.

Removing your property from the Olde Town Subarea would not:
  • Affect school district boundaries.
  • Affect your ability to vote for any city proposals.
  • Change the zoning of your property.
  • Affect access to budgeting for road and sidewalk repair/improvements.  

The process to revise the plan — which was adopted in 1999 and last updated in 2009 — will continue into 2018.

Once the Planning Policy Commission makes its recommendations on the plan update, the City Council (including its Land & Shore Committee) will further study the updates before considering adoption in the Fall of 2018.
