Should Flagstaff create new standards that determine how big a block should be?
This survey should take you 5 to 10 minutes to complete. This is the first of four topics that will break out a part of the draft High Occupancy Housing Plan and solicit your feedback.
High Occupancy Housing projects are usually proposed in activity centers and urban neighborhoods. Currently, the City’s Subdivision, Engineering and Zoning Codes are silent on the expected connectivity of the road network and pedestrian connections in these areas. Having standards about block size and when alleys are expected could discourage large irregular-shaped buildings that limit the ability of pedestrians to move through an activity center. Up until now, different proposals have handled this question in different ways. For instance, Freemont Station on Forest Meadows created a new street and pedestrian connection across a large block in Woodlands Village. The Hub, on the other hand, built a large building in the middle of the block with no new connections or alleys. The HOH Draft Plan proposes several changes to City Subdivision and Engineering Codes that would require future HOH developers to add roads, alleys and pedestrian connections that increase the connectivity around these larger buildings. This survey will introduce these concepts and solicit your feedback on how to make the proposals better or to change them.
The City of Flagstaff has released a draft High Occupancy Housing Plan for a 60-day public review. The review ends on September 27, 2017 and comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The complete document, board and commission presentations, and notes from public meetings are all available on the City website at www.flagstaff.az.gov/hohplan.
