The area around Leary Ave. NW, between 15th Ave. NW and 20th Ave. NW, currently zoned IB-65, IG2-65 and C1-65.
In addition to the rezone recommendations, DPD is also proposing that Design Review and Green Factor would apply to projects in Industrial Commercial (IC) zones within Urban Villages. Specific to the Ballard HUV, a restrictive covenant is proposed for the subarea 2 to help address noise issues that might arise from the adjacent Industrial General 1 properties to the south.
While to date DPD has primarily focused on developing recommendations for the Ballard HUV, staff has begun meeting with a similar working group in Fremont.
