What is a Regional Activity Center?

The City Council approved 2018 Land Use Plan identified five areas of the city as Regional Activity Centers. They are intended to become walkable areas that have a mix of several land uses, such as office, entertainment, retail, residential, civic, and hotels, all in varying ratios to allow each Center to have a unique character. This overall mix of uses is important in these Centers because they complement each other to ensure higher property values and tax revenues for the city. While land use mix is an important component of these Centers, so are their design considerations such as accessibility on foot, bicycle, or car, the building heights and location, having street level store fronts, and outdoor spaces shaded during the day and lit in the evening.
