Countryside Planning Maps

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