The Development Code defines land use and design standards for the corridor. The code is form-based and emphasizes the public qualities of buildings. The standards are graphically expressed and organized into three sections: General Rules & Definitions, the Regulating Plan, and Block Development Standards.
Chapter 3: McKinley Avenue District
Chapter 3: Lower Water Street District
Chapter 3: Upper Water Street District
Appendices: The Use Table was updated by Amendment #6 to the Plan. The Use Table found in Amendment #6 replaces the original table located in the Appendices and regulates eligible uses in the RED Park East Zoning District.
Zoning regulations are found in two locations:
- Either the Development Code or the Zoning Code's Chapter 4 or 7
RED Park East is a zoning district like any other district. It has permitted use, special uses and prohibited uses. It has regulation regarding setbacks and massing as with all other districts. These two areas are covered in the Development Code. The district also refers back to the General Provisions Chapter 4 as well. This would apply to signage, landscaping, fencing and other site features.
Background: When the Park East Development Code was created, the sites in the plan had an underlying zoning of C9B, Downtown Districts. Items not specifically covered by the Park East Development Code were covered by the C9B regulation. A change occurred when the RED district concept was created. (To learn more, click here) As a detailed form-based regulatory plan was created, the Redevelopment Plan (Development Code) became the zoning. As such, general provision items follow the same standards as would be followed in the C9B District.

Building Design for the RED Park East District:
Including Building Height Ranges Permitted, Street Frontage Build-out Requirements, Setback Ranges, Street Adjacent Uses for Pedestrian Activation, Glazing and other design requirements.
The Development Code controls these aspects. Alterations or additions to existing building would need to conform to these requirements, and buildings should move towards conformity if currently non-conforming to this code.
Using the Development Code:
First, determine the block in the plan. Each block has specific height range, build-out requirements and height minimums and maximums. Determine how much of the block face must be built out on the first floor and what percent of the block face on the upper floors
Chapter 2 of the Development Code explains how standards are applied and contains important general provisions, such as appropriate street activating uses along street edge.
See Chapter 4 of the zoning code.
