Development Guidelines 

 

The Southmoreland neighborhood is a diverse historical, arts, museum and medium & high density residential district. Our neighborhood is characterized by historical housing and historically-significant schools and museums.

We believe that all development in Southmoreland should be designed to strengthen and enhance our neighborhood identity; be guided by local resident and commercial associations; follow neighborhood plans; pursue transit and pedestrian friendly designs; and improve the quality of life of our residents. 

Current planning resources for our neighborhood include the 
Main Street Corridor Land Use and Development Plan (adopted and used by the city), the Midtown Plaza Plan (also adopted by the city), the Cultural Heritage District Plan, and the AURI Plan (Applied Urban Research Institute) for the Southmoreland neighborhood.
