Nontransect Zones

Nontransect Zones are the proposed new use-based ("Euclidian") zoning paradigm under CodeNEXT. These zones primarily specify the allowed uses of the property and have secondary restrictions on the form of the buildings.

Consultants and staff have generally said that this paradigm is designed more for "driveable suburban" areas, with transect zones for "walkable urban" areas. This distinction seems strange looking at the actual text and maps -- the DC and CC nontransect zones do foster a high degree of walkability, while the T3 family of transect zones does not allow enough density to support walkable neighborhoods.
