Regulatory tools-zoning, subdivision ordinances
Purpose of today’s session: present, discuss, and receive feedback on the substantial progress of the form-based development coding effort
“Form-based codes foster predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. These codes are adopted into city or county law as regulations, not mere guidelines.”
- Form-Based Codes Institute
McKinney’s Town Center is “traditional”--was developed prior to conventional zoning and subdivision
Designed with pedestrians and walking in mind
Vibrant mix of uses and compact urban form (grid street network)
Small blocks/small lots/narrow streets
Buildings closer to the street
Existing zoning districts do not relate directly to the Town Center Vision/Master Plan
Zoning is fractured and does not coalesce into a clear center, edge, and transitions as identified in the Master Plan
Lack of adjacency predictability = more risk for developers/investors
Existing standards do not result in a predictable built environment. For example, non-residential buildings in General Business (BG) may be built to the street (0’ minimum setback) but are not required to be built to the street.
Mixing residential uses with commercial uses is not permitted by right. This is critical for the long-term success of McKinney’s Town Center.
Current zoning does not adequately address transitions (size, scale, massing, building form) to adjoining neighborhoods.
Lack of functional urban design standards to ensure that new development is pedestrian-oriented and is consistent with the community’s vision.
