The new Multifamily Code is scheduled to come up for a vote before Council on Monday. Â After years of process, hearings, and work shaping the outcomes, the new code will have some new attributes geared toward more flexibility in heights, parking, setbacks, and density. Â It disincentivizes the '6 pack' townhomes everyone dislikes and gives out bonuses for green building, designs that hid parking and give a better streetscape.
For those of us who participated in the sausage-making legislative process over the years, it is great to see that it will finally come up for a vote. Â If you want to see the vote, and who wouldn't, it will be at City Hall at 2pm Monday.
