Livonia Vision 21 Zoning Ordinance (Proposed)

The LIVONIA VISION 21 Zoning Ordinance is designed to encourage and facilitate the implementation of the goals and objectives of the LIVONIA VISION 21 Master Plan. Some of the key features of the new Zoning Ordinance include:

 

  1. Consolidating, restructuring and renaming several zoning districts to correspond with the future land use classifications of the Master Plan.
  2. “Right-sizing” the City’s residential districts to reduce the amount of nonconformity that currently exists which can hamper owners from making improvements to their properties.
  3. Incorporating form-based development standards for the City’s commercial districts to encourage and expedite redevelopment of the Master Plan’s three Special Planning Areas and Mixed Development Centers. Form-based standards focus more on achieving good design principles and less on the separation of land uses.
  4. Recodifying and reorganizing the entire zoning code to make it easier and more convenient to navigate directly to the article or section that the user is seeking.
  5. Adding standards for new technologies and land uses, like electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, and solar and wind-powered energy systems.
