City Council voted unanimously to REDO how the City of Montrose approaches development near the downtown.
The Redevelopment Overlay (REDO) Zoning ordinance was approved on August 7th during the Council’s regular meeting.
The new zoning ordinance will allow construction of homes on smaller, 25’ x 125’ lots; whereas before, construction was restricted to 50’ x 125’ lots. This will allow property owners to build more houses on existing properties, where before it was prohibited. In addition, previously nonconforming properties will now be able to conform to the new zoning guidelines.
REDO zoning is one of many actions that the city is taking as part of our updated Comprehensive Plan. By adding housing closer to the core of Montrose, the city will add vibrancy to the downtown area.
To help residents and property owners understand this new REDO Zoning, the city has issued a pamphlet providing instructions and examples of how the REDO Zoning can affect property in the downtown.
