Armory Update Part 2.5
In yesterday’s post about the possible developments at the old National Guard Armory at Oakland and Sycamore, I noted that almost any use would require rezoning the property – likely to PUD (planned unit development). I expressed some concern that even zoning the Armory PUD wouldn’t permit a wide enough range of uses.
A reader with knowledge of the city code wrote in to suggest that BPL (planned business district) might be a more appropriate option. I took a look at the code and I agree. BPL would allow all the uses Wallace is considering for the property and would also allow residential use permitted in R-3 districts. Click here to take a look at the BPL ordinance and see for yourself.
Thanks to the reader who suggested BPL as an option!
