What Does This Mean for Locals?
Many critics have argued that the new project will create “havoc” on the roads and problems for Logan’s new zoning laws. While the council has started building infrastructure to reduce congestion, this still leaves the issue of the new and proposed zoning laws.
While the project anticipates 600 new jobs and expects to add more than $50 million to the local economy, the only way this can happen is with the introduction of new laws that enable commercial zoning.
Major changes are likely to include zoning and density restrictions, while minor changes will set limits on street parking.
What Are Logan’s New Zoning Laws?
Zoning is a term that refers to various types of regulations the either permit or prevent certain types of activities taking place on land. This includes how the land should be used, ie. residential, agricultural or industrial.
With regard to residential zoning, people should consider density. Density determines what type of residential homes you can have on the land. A low-density housing permit will support a single family, whereas a high-density housing permit is required for high-rise apartment buildings.
