Millcreek is looking for office space. We need to move by July 1st. The Council recently issued a Request for Proposal, and received several responses that they are now considering.
PLANNING AND ZONING UPDATES
C-1, C-2, and C-3 zone amendments. The Millcreek Township Planning Commission held an open house on March 29th, to obtain input on changes being considered for Millcreek’s commercial zones, including the C-1, C-2 and C-3 zones. A draft of the ordinance as was proposed to the Planning Commission can be found here. The draft went before the Millcreek Planning Commission on April 19th, and will be recommended to the City Council with changes. The City Council will then consider the ordinance. We’ll keep this site updated the ordinance progresses.
The proposed changes do not alter the on-the-ground outlines of the commercial zones. Instead, the changes are designed to have Millcreek’s ordinances comply better with state law. They will also fix issues that have arisen from years of no change in the status quo, in an effort to keep up with the changing times.
New MD zone. The City recently adopted a new Mixed Development (MD) zone. The zone change won’t be applied at this point to any specific area. But in the future, property owners will be able to seek MD zoning in order to pursue a greater variety of uses in the Meadowbrook area of the City (west of State Street). The MD zone will promote a very urban setting in an area of our community that has been somewhat neglected and which is adjacent to TRAX.
Going forward. The tentative schedule for updating ordinances has us also revising the Residential Multiple-Family and Manufacturing zones, rewriting the Conditional Use chapter, preparing new definitions, and crafting a design ordinance. Eventually, we will be updating almost every paragraph in the zoning ordinance. Keep your eye out here and in the weekly newsletter for open houses and public hearings. We want as much input from the Millcreek community as we can get.
