In 2009, the City adopted four new zone district categories relating to mixed use. The mixed use zone districts are designed to allow a wide range of land uses, encourage quality design, and enable higher density development for targeted commercial corridors as well as the future transit-oriented development at the Ward Road GoldLine end of line commuter rail station in the northwest portion of the City. The entitlement process for a zone change to a mixed use zone district category is quicker and requires less up front expenses compared to a zone change to planned development. The four mixed use zone districts are Mixed Use-Commercial, Mixed Use-Commercial Interstate, Mixed Use-Commercial TOD and Mixed Use-Neighborhood. See Article XI - Mixed Use Zone Districts in the Municipal Code.
