Name: City of La Crosse - Developers Meeting
Date: July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM CDT
Event Description:
WHAT
A meeting with City Planner Jason Gilman to provide feedback on his most recent development plans.

WHY
Per Jason Gilman: 

Recalling our last meeting with the developers and my commitment to deliver a regulatory change that would streamline development in the City; I’ve attached the work this has resulted in and what we are taking forward though Neighborhood Associations and some committees.

 

At some point, I’d like to re-engage the developers to get their input on this approach.  Generally it does the following:

 

1.      Creates targeted redevelopment nodes in the City where an overlay district allows more liberal approaches to development

2.      Opens up land use restrictions in these nodes

3.      Bases approval on administrative review rather than public hearings

4.      Allows for 25% parking requirement reductions administratively

5.      Aligns with financial incentives for redevelopment (like TIF and tax credit programs)

6.      Is transferable to areas having redevelopment potential such as the Kmart site, or intersections with underperforming or vacant properties

7.      Bases approval on flexible form based development standards rather than overly prescriptive area standards
