Mark your calendars for a Community Open House on two projects, the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) and the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan. This joint open house will be held Dec. 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the PACE Center. Drop in, learn more, ask questions and provide input about these projects that are currently under development!
LDO Module 3 – Administration and Procedures
There will be a brief presentation on the development of the third and final LDO Module 3. The LDO Modernization Project is the first comprehensive rewrite of Parker’s Land Development Ordinance since it was originally adopted in 1981 from Douglas County zoning.
The project started with phase 1 (of 2) that included public engagement and analysis of the current LDO resulting in a Diagnostic Report, Annotated Outline and a Project Charter. Currently in phase 2, the drafting of the revised LDO, staff and the project consultant have completed two of the three ‘modules,’ Module 1 – Zoning Districts and Uses and Module 2 - Development Standards. Once completed, a public draft of Module 3 will be available for public review and comment this fall on the project website at www.ParkerOnline.org/LDO.
Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan
Presentation display boards will be available for viewing and comment on the development of Parker’s Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan. The plan, a supplement to the Town’s Transportation Master Plan, will serve as the Town’s policy document and ‘road map’ to support safe, comfortable and connected bike and pedestrian infrastructure. It will also incorporate the Town’s current Bike Lane Plan and include recommendations to develop a consolidated bike and pedestrian master plan that creates a cohesive Townwide bicycle and pedestrian network for all users.
A draft for public review and comment is nearing completion and will be made available soon at www.ParkerOnline.org/BikeAndPedPlan. Final adoption of the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan is expected in Q1 2023.
