The purpose of the Mixed Use Development District is to permit commercial and/or residential uses in a well-planned environment. Development controls are established to encourage commercial uses along Ventnor Avenue in support of the City Commercial District and residential uses along the residential neighborhoods formed along east-westbound streets if a mixed use development option is selected. Development will be encouraged to blend in with surrounding neighborhoods by maintaining limits on building envelope scale. Development must maintain a unique landmark character which is complementary to the surrounding neighborhood and reminiscent of early 20th century architecture.
