  • 1. Countryside Maps
    • Index
    • Overview/aerial photography
    • Parcel sizes
    • Topography
    • Water and Forest Cover
    • Land Use
    • Zoning
    • Street System
  • 2. Overview
    • This map shows property lines superimposed on an aerial photo. City land holdings are shown in yellow and Airport land holdings in blue.
    • Development challenges:
    • Topography
    • Property is fragmented
    • Existing land uses
    • Flood plain and wetlands
    • Airport noise
    • Limits on usage of Runway Protection Zone (RPZ)
    • Disconnected street system
  • 3. Overview
    • Strengths:
    • Most surrounding residential and commercial is strong & well-maintained
    • Potential for passive open spaces (i.e., RPZ)
    • Future greenway route and potential for linkages
    • Potential to highlight water features
    • Opportunities to improve transportation access
    • Recent investment in the vicinity
    • Adjacent to new WFHS complex
    • Exceptional viewsheds – elevated above most of city
  • 4. Parcel Sizes Property is fragmented by streets and other parcels (RPZ). Parcels range from a half acre to 69 acres.
  • 5. Topography
    • This map shows higher elevations in dark green and lower elevation in light green
    • Three topographic areas
    • Elevations range from 1,050’ to 1,160’
    • (110’ change)
    • Steep slope running NW-SE
  • 6. Water and Forest Cover
    • The property is impacted by floodplain running NW-SE along the foot of a steep slope.
    • Two ponds are listed as wetlands.
    • Some of the forest cover shown on the airport property was recently removed.
  • 7. Land Use
    • The Countryside property is listed as a commercial use.
    • Single family residential dominates to the north and west of the property
    • Multifamily and commercial uses are located to the south.
  • 8. Zoning
    • The Countryside property and the RPZ are zoned Recreation and Open Space (ROS)
    • Surrounding zoning includes residential generally located to the north and west.
    • Industrial, institutional, and higher density residential zoning districts are present to the south
  • 9. Street System
    • This map shows the street system with arterial streets in dark red, collector streets in light red, and local streets in tan.
    • The street system surrounding and through the property is highly fragmented with disconnected streets.
    • Nearly all traffic accessing existing development in the area must use Cove Road.
    • Few streets have sidewalks, so pedestrians are forced to walk in the street.
