Thank you for your comments. Your question about precluding persons or families from renting housing is regulated by the Arizona Fair Housing Act and the U.S. Fair Housing Act.

Thank you for your comments. One of the purpose of the waste management plan is help minimize unnecessary refuse from going to the landfill. Arizona State Law A.R.S. 9.500.38 prohibits the City from requiring recycling. A.R.S. 9-500.07 and 9.500.38 allows for voluntary recycling and waste reduction programs.

Thank you for your comments. Currently, the adopted Regional Plan and specific plans implementation strategies only address heights in the Community Commercial zone.

My support for mixed use was originally based on my naive belief that we could have commercial stores with residences above. I naively thought this wouldn't be more than 2-3 stories. Instead what now is being pushed as mixed use is student housing with stores below. I would prefer to see this not as a requirement because it forces the height to be 60 feet so they can pack as many beds and parking spaces as possible. My preference is first floor apartments with actual individual entrances on the street so there is more possibility of neighborhood interaction and a neighborhood feel. This is not possible with commercial below or strip malls facing the street.

I'd like to see the rooming and boarding use removed from as many zones as possible. If that is not what this is stating than it should be a conditional use in all zones.

So does this mean that HOH is rent by room housing? If that is not the case then there should still be an additional hoop a developer has to jump through if they want to exclude families and only have students. Our goal should be to have housing that serves all and doesn't discriminate against families or anyone who cannot afford the expensive rent by room costs. If all of these changes are happening to regulate student housing or rent by room housing than you should call it what it is. It seems with this change you are just making it easier for developers to have this type of rental property. Rent by room should be approved with carefull consideration of the neighborhood and the needs of the whole community not just NAU.

This is a great idea and along with bus passes should be encourage and incentivized.

This is something that would need to be studied and understood how the incentives, along with neighborhood parking regulations would work to keep students from bringing there cars. It's important that we do not create excess spaces and that we don't cater to the desires of the developer to make sure he always has full occupancy and guaranteed parking for every bed. Our goal should be for them to figure out how to reduce their parking needs so our limited areas for development are not taken up with cars!
