Please note that as the community's efforts through the workshop series will be used for two different, but related purposes, there will be two products proposed for adoption.

The first document proposed for endorsement is the Upper Market Community Vision and Recommendations, which will be a standing statement of the community's broad work in the workshops, and a call to action for future work on the recommendations made by the community through that process. For those of you familiar with the draft document for review, this document contains all of the initial draft’s chapters 1-4 and 6. The Department will be asking for Planning Commission's endorsement of the Upper Market Community Vision and Recommendations at the hearing on Oct 23rd.

The second document proposed for endorsement is the Upper Market Development Design Guidelines, and it will direct building and site design to be of the character and quality specified by the community through the workshop process. For those of you familiar with the draft document for review, this document represents chapter 5 of the draft. The Department will be asking for Planning Commission's endorsement of the Upper Market Development Design Guidelines, and for adherence to these guidelines to be a driving criteria for approval of new development within the Upper Market Plan Area, at the hearing on Oct 23rd.
