Shelton, Washington - The City of Shelton will hold an Open House to share information about the proposed zoning regulations and boundary amendments to the Downtown (DT) Zoning District, affecting the Shelton Comprehensive Plan. Property owners, residents, business owners and other interested parties are invited to attend and provide feedback. The Open House will be held on Wednesday, November 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
at the Shelton Civic Center, located at 525 West Cota Street.
The purpose of the Open House is to describe the stated vision for the DT Zoning District, to review the current DT Zoning District area and regulations, and to suggest refinements to the DT Zoning District area and regulations that better fit the stated vision with the built environment and market realities. The DT Zoning District includes the “core” downtown area south of Franklin Street and north of Cota Street between First and Seventh Streets, and extends south of Cota Street between Third and Front. There have been discussions recently regarding the uses permitted and conditionally allowed in this district, and whether or not “pedestrian-oriented retail” is appropriate or desired for the First Street/State Route 3 corridor, which a portion of this district presently includes.
The City is considering adopting amendments to the City Comprehensive Plan, and any accompanying amendments to the district boundaries and/or regulations in the months ahead. The public is invited to attend this open house to learn more, ask questions and make suggestions regarding the contemplated refinements.
