Planning Commission Introduces Draft Zoning for Central Delaware Waterfront
Overlay zoning controls were presented by the Planning Commission this week. The Commission expects the draft will be inserted into the new zoning code scheduled to take effect August 22 this year.
The entire Central Delaware Waterfront will be subject to the overlay’s provisions on building height, and form and design. The minimum building height is 25 ft., and maximum is 100 ft. The draft code provides for a “waiver” on building height limits that will allow the Commission to grant exceptions for buildings over 100 ft. without requiring a variance from the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
The purpose of the overlay is “to connect the public and neighborhoods to the waterfront, promote sound economic development, support diverse, walkable neighborhoods, and preserve and renew historic and natural resources.”
