Litchfield Park’s Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council are considering what types of businesses and other land uses to permit in the planned downtown City Center project.
By the end of the year, City Council will take action on new general plan and zoning designations that will outline allowed land uses and design guidelines for the planned downtown commercial and entertainment center. By law, any major general plan amendment must be acted on by City Council in the same calendar year it is proposed.
Planning consultant Jason Sanks said the general plan designation creates a basis of the vision for City Center and the zoning district creates more specific guidelines for what types of businesses should be allowed and design themes for the project.
