A pedestrian zone designation requires active uses off the sidewalk (like restaurants and shops) and uses development standards to strengthen, protect and promote walkable shopping and service areas. We are evaluating areas within your neighborhoods to determine where to suggest adding to existing pedestrian retail areas (pedestrian zones). We will map these areas and apply rules to protect and promote pedestrian retail. We are also considering modifications to the existing regulations that would apply to existing and new pedestrian zones.
Please review the overview on pedestrian zones
and our preliminary recommendations,
and take our survey. The survey results will be used to inform final recommendation to submit to the Mayor, as to whether or not to designate a pedestrian zone in any of the areas under review and whether or not to modify the pedestrian zone requirements.
