19 th Avenue @ 24 th Street Existing Development Context

Future land use for the node around the US 41/24 th Street intersection is Suburban Mixed Use-6. The Suburban Mixed Use-6 category allows up to six dwelling units per gross acre, provided the project demonstrates a clustered, planned development utilizing open space which ensures the preservation of the natural and scenic qualities of open lands. Typical uses also include suburban scale neighborhood commercial, office uses, research corporate park, light industrial multi-purpose, and mixed-use projects which meet appropriate criteria for each location. Apart from the northeast quadrant, this node is fully developed or will soon be developed in a modern suburban pattern. The northeast quadrant is part of the Waterset DRI and is planned for up to 160,000 square feet of commercial uses and single family residential. 19 th Avenue is currently a two-lane road with paved shoulders and open drainage through this node.
