Draft Chapter: Dynamic Neighborhoods

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Over the coming year, the goal of the HoCo By Design project team is to release draft planning theme chapters one at a time for community review and feedback.

The first planning theme chapter is Dynamic Neighborhoods: Maintaining and Supporting Vibrant Living for a More Equitable Future.

The policies presented in each chapter are draft statements based on data, best practices, and community feedback received to date. In April, the project team sought feedback from the community--at public meetings and through the Dynamic Neighborhoods Survey--to further refine draft policies .

The Dynamic Neighborhoods chapter of the General Plan provides guidance on maintaining and supporting vibrant living that meets the needs of current and future residents and offers opportunities for a more equitable future for all. The chapter focuses on diversifying housing options throughout the County, increasing housing affordability, creating amenity-rich neighborhoods, improving infrastructure in existing and new neighborhoods, and encouraging a balanced approach to residential development for all income levels and age ranges.

Reference Materials:

For additional reference, the following materials provide context and linkages between the draft Dynamic Neighborhoods chapter and other elements of the draft Plan:

  • The draft Introduction Chapter describes how HoCo By Design builds upon the County’s current General Plan and sets a broad vision for the next 20 years, including a central focus on advancing equity throughout the Plan.

  • The draft Character Areas & Future Land Use Map (FLUM) generally depicts intended land use for areas throughout the County and describes each Character Area’s unique and discernable purpose, design, and feel.

  • The project team has also prepared a primer on Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) that may be helpful to readers unfamiliar with the concept and how it relates to current County policy.
