Neighborhood Infill Design Standards - Public Informational Meeting
Infill development refers to new construction of residential buildings in established neighborhoods. In response to community concerns about the quality and design compatibility of infill development in Davenport, the Staff of the Planning/Land Use and Design Center of the Community and Economic Development Department has been researching alternatives on addressing the issue.
Staff has developed a preliminary set of standards and has ideas on how they might be applied. The challenge remains establishing a set of criteria and approval process that protects the character of established neighborhoods while promoting infill development at the same time. Questions also remain concerning the level of detail and how the review and approval process might work.
Prior to specific proposals are shared with the Plan and Zoning Commission, Historic Preservation Commission and City Council, a public informational meeting will be held to share ideas. The meeting will be held:
Wednesday, November 28, 2007
City of Davenport Design Center
102 E. Second Street (Across from the Radisson)
If attendees have photographs of infill development in their neighborhood, both good and bad, please bring them to the meeting. Everyone is invited!
