What do you want your downtown to look like? How many stories do you want it to be?
Here are three ways to find out more about the draft Downtown Davis Specific Plan:
- Watch the Opticos Video Presentation to DPAC
The October 24th Opticos presentation to the Downtown Plan Advisory Committee (DPAC) is available for viewing on the City video archives under at https://www.cityofdavis.org/city-hall/city-council/city-council-meetings/meeting-videos – click on "Other." The Opticos presentation at the DPAC meeting begins at about the 05:00 minute mark on the video and goes until 1:02:00. The presentation provides a good introduction and overview of the Draft Downtown Plan and also touches on the Draft Form Based Code. It is followed by about 1.5 hours of DPAC questions and comments if interested in that part of the meeting.
- Community Meeting/Open House – Saturday November 2nd at 1:00 PM
This Saturday (tomorrow) there will be a Community meeting at the Davis Community Church starting at 1:00 PM. It is for the general public and anyone is welcome. There will be a brief presentation at 1:30, but will primarily be an open house format for the public to come at their convenience. See flier above.
- Other Meetings
Other meetings include a DPAC meeting scheduled for November 14th for committee discussion about the draft plan and two training sessions on the Form Based Code for code users scheduled for November 20th and December 11th.
