I am trying to get a better grasp of the repercussions of trying to rezone some areas within one of our major corridors. I would ultimately like to make this corridor all fall within our PD standards, and hope that in time the redevelopment will help change the character of the area, but we are throwing around the idea of just placing an overlay district on top of current zoning, since it will be much easier to do.
Any thoughts on the positives and negatives of doing either. I looked back and saw last year there was short discussion on why PD's are valuable. I believe they are valuable, I just want to understand the trouble I will be facing of rezoning maybe 30 properties along a roadway, or if just putting an overlay will be easier and less hassle... but get the overall same final product.
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated!
