Amendments to the Community Development Code, Chapter 50, Article 50.03.003.3 (Use Table) to allow “Fitness exercise and sports facilities” up to 20,000 square feet in floor area in the Industrial Park (IP) zone and IP Overlay District.
Currently, “Fitness exercise and sports facilities” are only allowed in the IP Overlay if less than 5,000 square feet in floor area. The City’s last industrial area is envisioned as a high employment area but there are few amenities to serve those future employees. The proposed text amendments would allow “Fitness exercise and sports facilities” in both the IP zone and IP Overlay up to 20,000 square feet in area in order to provide a more varied mix of amenities in easy walking and/or driving distance for employees.
