Overview: The purpose of this meeting is to get Advisory Board and Commission input on the central elements of a forthcoming zoning code that will propose appropriate station area development standards for the Gateway Station Area. This follows on the October 16, 2017 Joint Advisory Board Meeting and is part of a series of next steps that the Council received and supported as part of Gateway’s presentation in June 2017 (see materials for agenda item #11).
