A pilot program to put vacant and underused lots to better use by allowing a variety of interim “active uses” and short term parking on certain lots was passed by City Council in late March. Council Bill 117046 is one of two legislation items that promotes economic relief due to stalled development and that encourages ridership on the Link light rail system.
DPD is proposing legislation to establish a pilot program to promote more active use of vacant and underused lots.
Electronic plan submission and review is now in the pilot project stage. DPD will be working with 45 applicants to develop processes and technology for electronic submission and review of plan sets for building and land use permits.
