ONA Monthly Meeting

Solarium - 321 W. Hill Street  

The next public input sessions:

Sustainability | April 16 | Decatur City Hall | 7-9pm
How does the community feel about incorporating “green standards” into buildings and sites? Are we willing to accept increased costs to achieve certain environmental goals? If so, how, and under what circumstances?

New/Amended Zoning Districts | April 23 | Decatur City Hall | 7-9pm
The Strategic Plan’s goals for a more diversified housing mix reflect a gap — what we’re calling the missing middle — between our predominantly single-family residential and our downtown. This session explores the idea of transitional districts to accommodate things like live/work units, downtown-friendly townhouses, small-scale apartment buildings, neighborhood-scaled mixed use, cottage courts, and more, and gauges the circumstances under which such solutions might make sense.
