Community Screening

Preliminary Staff Recommendation: 
PC17-PR-004 is not recommended to be added to the 2018 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program at this time. The proposed increase in intensity is greater than the planned development potential within the neighboring core area and would not be consistent with the established land use pattern in the suburban center. While the nomination raises a number of concerns about the adopted plan in the justification, the adopted plan provides a significant amount of redevelopment potential above the base plan and an appropriate level of development when compared to the neighboring core area.
