North Fork of the Elkhorn River Overlay District

The intent of the North Fork of the Elkhorn River Overlay District is to provide the flexibility for future new development to facilitate a positive transition from the existing downtown district toward a lively, active riverfront. 

 

The overlay district supplements the underlying zoning to provide a framework that includes the tenets of a sustainable urban business environment (corporate office space, ancillary retail development, public and private parking, safe streets) and residential neighborhoods, while encouraging and promoting a connection to the elements of an accessible, pedestrian-friendly, multi-use riverfront that serves the larger community as a whole. 

 

It is the intent of this overlay district to protect and preserve existing residential and business properties while encouraging cohesive and harmonious design strategy for future new development.
