A Transit Oriented Development zoning district incorporating form based regulations was formally adopted in 2013 for the area within one-half mile of the new transit center. The regulations were designed to encourage moderate and high density mixed use development within walking distant of the transit area, create a friendly and safe environment for bicyclists and pedestrians, and protect existing neighborhoods integrating new development in a context sensitive manner.
