More Plans: Downtown Business District

Continuing our series of fairly recent planning documents is the Design Manual (.pdf) the Village has adopted for the downtown business area,  known as the B-1 District. In general terms the district covers Main Street from Portage to Union Street. The manual complements existing zoning regulations and provides illustrated examples of how those regulations should be interpreted within the district.  The approach is fairly broad but still gives site planners and architects a design framework that can meet both the needs of the development project and the community’s vision for the downtown area.
