Sec. 27-280.01.  Intent - North Fork of the Elkhorn River Overlay.

 

The intent of this North Fork of the Elkhorn River Overlay District is to overlay the primary zoning districts established and described in Article VII of this Chapter which may be applicable to land contained within the officially designated North Fork of the Elkhorn River Overlay District to provide the flexibility for future new development to facilitate a positive transition from the existing downtown district toward a lively, active riverfront.  This overlay district will supplement the underlying zoning to provide a framework that includes the tenets of a sustainable urban business environment (corporate office space, ancillary retail development, public and private parking, safe streets) and residential neighborhoods, while encouraging and promoting a connection to the elements of an accessible, pedestrian-friendly, multi-use riverfront that serves the larger community as a whole.  It is further the intent of this overlay district to protect and preserve existing residential and business properties while encouraging cohesive and harmonious design strategy for future new development.
