Illustrating Our Vision: Character Districts
With the Vision, Common Values and Achieving Our Vision unanimously approved, our community’s direction needs to be celebrated by Illustrating Our Vision. The Character Districts that Illustrate Our Vision depict where and how the approved Comprehensive Plan policies will be put into action on the ground. These districts will inform land development regulations and zoning district boundaries.
