The adopted Land Use Code controls and regulates uses and future development. The location of the potential arena site is located within the boundaries of the Stadium Transition Overlay District. An arena is an allowed use in the area; there is no provision that limits the number of stadia. The Stadium Transition Overlay District centers on sports facilities and was created to encourage complementary uses, create a safe and inviting pedestrian environment for people attending sporting events and to concentrate the demand for these uses in a distinct area so as to limit conflict with nearby industrial activities.
