Decatur UDO Idea #2: Missing Middle DistrictDecatur Metro | January 10, 2014 | 2:08 pm
Up next on the laundry list of suggested zoning updates for the Unified Development Ordinance process, a new zoning designation: the “Middle Middle District”. Again, here’s the description from the presentation from a couple days back.
WHAT IS IT? Allows urban, medium-density residential uses:
- Small lot-single-family homes
- Cottage courts
- 4- and 6-unit buildings resembling houses
WHY? Existing multifamily district promotes incompatible development. The new district would provide housing options for residents who want to downsize, but don’t want to live in a large multifamily building in Downtown.
WHERE? Only available for future rezoning.
