Fresno releases “Downtown Development Code” public draft + video of new lofts

Because of new interest in building downtown (after 2 decades of zero growth), the city has decided to rework their zoning code for the area, to take into account urban concepts like street-walls, hidden parking and yes, buildings taller than 2 stories. Previously, builders had to go through mountains of red tape to get approval for urban buildings in a code designed for suburban sprawl.

The public draft of this new form-based code is now available online

There will also be a public “exploration” of it next week.

To kick-off the public review process, the City of Fresno will hold a public workshop to orient property and business owners, residents, and the public with the new draft Code. Click here to see agenda. The meeting will occur at Fresno City Hall, 2600 Fresno Street, Fresno, CA: Click to read more!
