NEW DOWNTOWN PLAN: NEW ZONING
In February of 2009 the Evanston City Council formally adopted the Evanston Downtown Plan. This plan helped create policy and a roadmap for future development within the defined downtown district. Recommendations were given within the plan for new zoning districts to help guide these recommendations.
Implementing the Downtown Plan will require replacing the five existing “performance-based” zoning districts (D1-4 and RP) that comprise the downtown with eight new “form/incentive-based” districts identified in the Plan (RD1-3, DT1-2 and DC1-3), completely rewriting Chapters 11 and 12 of the Zoning Ordinance, re-zoning every parcel of land in downtown Evanston, and making a host of ancillary amendments across the Zoning Ordinance and to other sections of the city code to accommodate these changes.
In February 2011 the Plan Commission approved a set of proposed zoning text amendments to accompy a map amendment to the City Council. To see the proposed zoning text and map amendments please reference the following documents
Changes to the zoning code have not occurred yet, the City Council will consider the proposed zoning changes sometime in 2013.
