Will the city allow taller buildings downtown?
When the City Council meets for a workshop Tuesday, councilors will review development projects and a potential ordinance change in a presentation by city Economic Development Director Mike Scala.
“One thing we will talk about is a potential change to the city’s height ordinance,” Scala said. “Currently the height for downtown buildings is capped at 55 feet. We are considering going to 75 feet but not as an overall change. It would be conditional use, on a case by case basis.”
He did not identify any specific current proposals to build higher than 55 feet.
The council also will get an update on where the city stands with projects that are part of the 79-E program.
