Tempe development plan dead after lack of consensus

By Paulina Pineda | Arizona Republic

A three-pronged plan that would have guided development in Tempe’s downtown core over the next 20 years was scrapped Thursday, after nearly three years of work.

The Urban Core Master Plan, as it was called, would have provided building and design guidelines for development across approximately 6 square miles bounded by Loop 202 in the north, Union Pacific Railroad tracks in the south, Hardy Drive in the west and Loop 101 in the east.

Two related items, the Urban Code District, which would have updated land-use regulations and building design standards along public transit routes, and the Development Bonus Program, an initiative that would have allowed developers to build taller buildings in exchange for the creation of affordable housing or preservation of historic properties, also were tabled.
