Zoning – Carrot vs. Stick »

2022 Fall Conference, September 9, 2022 10:10 am

Decade’s long planning practices show that most zoning ordinances in Utah, and nationwide, include PUD (or PRUD) standards which provide incentives such as increased density in exchange for improved (and unimproved) common area(s), better architectural design, etc., but these standards are often primarily limited to residential development. This session presents additional planning tools to encourage stronger commercial, mixed use, and residential projects to help achieve affordable housing goals, better mixed use, trails, open space, public improvements, and cutting-edge design. Such tools include mechanisms to meter residential development in mixed-use areas, a commercial equivalent to residential PUDs, development agreements, special exceptions as opposed to variances, finer grain density bonuses, increased building height allowances, TDRs, and more. Planners from Farmington City and North Salt Lake will discuss and present examples they have adopted and implemented in their respective communities.
