Ordinance 2011-31 is up for a vote this Thursday night at the Borough Assembly starting at roughly 8 PM. Ordinance 2011-31 is a second attempt to create Vision Fairbanks-inspired zone types to encourage investment downtown. The first effort was defeated in a 4-4 tie on March 24 due to concerns about the availability of parking in the new zone types. Ordinance 2011-31 therefore increases the availability of parking: parking lots would be allowed as a principal use in the Downtown Supporting Commercial District and the Retail Hot Spot zone would allow on-site accessory parking as a conditional use.
