    11. 11. An Update on Leytham Leytham Time Line • Planning Charrette was conducted by PlaceMakers (www.Placemakers.com) in September, 2006. • Preliminary plat and zoning approval was given unanimously by the Planning Board and City Council in June, 2007. • Lew Oliver, Whole Town Solutions, was selected as Leytham urban designer in February, 2008. Sample home plans have been designed. • Preliminary approval will be extended in expected in mid 2009. • Then, subject to SID and development loan financing, final approval can be granted. After that, grading can begin. Then, the sewers, paving and utilities will be installed. • The first lots in Phase I of Leytham could be buildable a year after final approval is granted. The first homes should be closing a year after that.
    12. 12. An Update on Leytham The “Leytham” Name • The Land Bounty Acts and the Leytham 1860 Patent The United States, in a series of Bounty Land Acts dating from the Revolutionary War in 1776 through 1855, followed a policy of rewarding those who served the country with bounty land grants. • Leytham Family History Richard and Elizabeth Leytham came from England to settle in Omaha in 1856, and then in 1860 to obtain bounty land Warrant 25,027 and to redeem that warrant for a patent from the federal government for 160 acres of virgin prairie in Douglas County, Nebraska Territory • Meaning of “Leytham” The etymology of British place names reveals that "Leytham" means, quite literally, "Village in the Meadow.“ How appropriate! It is only fitting and proper that we name Omaha’s new traditional neighborhood after Richard and Elizabeth Leytham . . . .

    22. 22. Zoning for Leytham Leytham’s Zoning Is Based on the Transect © Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company “Transect: a system of ordering human habitats in a range from the most natural to the most urban. The SmartCode is based on six Transect Zones which describe the physical character of place at any scale, according to the density and intensity of land use and urbanism.” T1 Natural T2 Rural T3 Sub-urban T4 Urban T5 Urban T6 Urban General Center Core
    23. 23. Transect “T - Zones” T-1 Natural Zone consists of lands approximating or reverting to a wilderness condition, including lands unsuitable for settlement due to topography, hydrology or vegetation. T-2 Rural Zone consists of lands in open or cultivated state or sparsely settled. These include woodland, agricultural land, grassland, and irrigable desert. T-3 Sub-Urban Zone consists of low density suburban residential areas, differing by allowing home occupations. Planting is naturalistic and set-backs relatively deep. Blocks may be large and the roads irregular to accommodate natural conditions. T-4 General Urban Zone consists of a mixed-use but primarily residential urban fabric. It has a wide range of building types: single, sideyard, and rowhouses. Setbacks and landscaping are variable. Streets define medium-sized blocks. T-5 Urban Center Zone consists of higher density mixed-use building types that accommodate retail, offices, rowhouses and apartments. It has a tight network of streets, with wide sidewalks, steady street tree planting and buildings set close to the frontages. T-6 Urban Core Zone consists of the highest density, with the greatest variety of uses, and civic buildings of regional importance. It may have larger blocks; streets have steady street tree planting and buildings set close to the frontages. Special Districts consist of areas with buildings that by their function, disposition, or configuration cannot conform to one of the six normative Transect Zones.

The Leytham Development Regulation is based on the SmartCode. The requirement that the neighborhood exist for 25 years has been removed. Base Zoning: DR R4 MU MU
    29. 29. The Leytham Neighborhood Conservation District Leytham Neighborhood Regulation (the “LNR”) The Leytham Neighborhood Regulation, like the SmartCode it emulates: • Is form-based. It encourages physical outcomes unlike conventional zoning which is focused on uses. • Operates at many levels. The LNR operates at the neighborhood level, the block level, the building level. • Is Transect-based. The LNR organizes the natural, edge, general and center urban landscapes into categories of density, complexity, and intensity of both design and use. • Is graphical in nature. The LNR is heavily illustrated with drawings, charts and tables. • Is enduring. The LNR, once adopted as law, will stay in place, allowing the neighborhood to evolve and mature without losing its sense of order because what is intended for the community has already been specified.
