There was also an additional workshop on Monday night, March 29, at 6:30pm via zoom.  This meeting will further develop the idea of of development hubs on transit oriented corridors. The City Commission will discuss appropriate locations for hubs (previously referred to as nodes) within the Urban Center Zoning Districts.  The roadways within these Districts include Wilton Drive, NE 26 Street, Dixie Highway, Andrews Avenue, and Oakland Park Boulevard.  Hubs are areas where higher density mixed use developments can occur that feature a pedestrian-friendly environment that fosters walkability and accessibility.  We want your input on this subject!    The zoom link is https://wiltonmanors.zoom.us/j/98844117299 or you can enter via telephone at 833 548 0282 (Toll Free) using the meeting code 988 4411 7299.

On Tuesday, March 16, 2021 Wilton Manors hosted a workshop regarding the proposed land use change for NE 26 Street, east of NE 15th Avenue.  The existing land use on NE 26 Street only allows for single use, which is currently designated for commercial or residential uses.  The proposed land use change would allow for mixed use along the corridor in the future.  

This land use amendment project does not address building heights, density, setbacks, or the types of businesses that would be permitted as part of the mixed use.  These issues will be addressed at a later time, and will occur as zoning regulations are developed.  Several additional community meetings will take place to  define the vision and impact for NE 26 Street and its surrounding neighborhoods.  

The density and zoning regulations for the City’s other Transit Oriented Corridors have been in the development process for many months and do not take a one-size-fits-all approach.  The character of each corridor is carefully considered with community outreach and different regulations have been drafted for each area.  A similar process will occur for this project.  

If you have not already shared your opinion, we would love to hear from you.  Send you written comments to public comment@wiltonmanors.com.

Here's the powerpoint presentation from the workshop. 

In the weeks to come, additional meetings, workshops and open houses will be held to review the project details.  Stay tuned to this page, or sign up for our weekly eblast for more information.
