Since the time of plan adoption, there have been limited <br /> economic activities within this District Center, and the activities that have occurred have been for <br /> building reuse, without any significant new building construction. <br /> On February 18, 2014, the Planning Commission held a public workshop to discuss the success of the <br /> subarea plan. The Commission made a determination that the regulations in the subarea plan are an <br /> impediment to investment in redevelopment of this Center. The Commission committed to a work <br /> program in 2014 to develop a recommendation for revised zoning standards to implement the City's <br /> Comprehensive Plan that facilitates redevelopment of the District Center. In the meantime, the <br /> Commission has recommended immediate revocation of the adopted subarea plan. Until such time as <br /> the Council adopts revised zoning for this District Center, the zoning of the site will revert to that which <br /> was in place prior to the subarea plan adoption in 2007. <br /> President Wheeler opened the public hearing...
