Form-Based Code Approved in Historic Westside!

On January 20th, the City Council voted to approve the General Plan Amendment and Rezoning of 603 acres within the Las Vegas Historic Westside District to the new zoning code Chapter 19.09, known as the Downtown Form-Based Code (FBC). This marks the third important step for the Form-Based Code project, which, over time, seeks to implement this innovative type of development code in all areas of downtown. The primary goal of the new zoning standards and related procedures is to modernize development regulations to implement the Vision 2045 Downtown Master Plan, which advocates for high quality of development, walkability and human scale in our downtown environment, and support transportation improvement via design and addition of available housing.
