August 2, 2018 - Town Zoning & Parking (Districts 3-6) Adopted, July 16th Town and County Joint Information Meeting. The new regulations became effective July 18, 2018. Review the new regulations as incorporated into the Land Development Regulations here:
These are the major zoning updates that will keep our community special:
The new regulations protect Stable Neighborhoods by not increasing density in these areas.
The new regulations will increase workforce housing opportunities by permitting more multi - family residential in Town near the “Y” and in the residential core of Town (see map).
Workforce housing incentives will be incorporated in targeted zones (e.g, market housing bonus in exchange for deed restricted workforce housing).
Development potential in peripheral neighborhoods with wildlife habitat value will decrease (see map).
What are we doing?
The Town is updating its zoning to achieve the community vision adopted in the 2012 Comprehensive Plan. Zoning is the set of regulations that determine the size, location, and use of buildings in Town. Character Districts 3 through 6 are mapped and include most of Jackson’s residential areas, plus the highway commercial corridors west of downtown.
