District Plan Ad Hoc Committee

Committee Purpose
In light of the changes in District 10 that appear to be forthcoming, it makes sense to update our Land Use Plan and review and restate our vision and goals for the district. The Midway Pkwy West Como Small Area Plan was last updated in the mid 90’s and the Lexington/Larpenteur Node Study ad hoc committee completed its report early in 2010.

Over the last year this committee reviewed the existing District 10 Land Use Plan of 2007 and the West Como Midway Parkway Small Area Plan of 1997, as well as the recently adopted Lexington/Larpenteur Node Study to determine their relevance and solicited input from district stakeholders. The goal is to compile a comprehensive up-to-date land use plan that will be adopted in to the City’s comprehensive plan, and to provide a recommendation to the City on how/whether we wish to proceed with any small area plans. The plan and recommendation will provide the City with the vision, policy priorities and strategies we want to guide growth, investment and development in District 10.

Monthly Meetings
The District Plan Ad Hoc Committee meets on the 2nd Monday of every month, and meetings are open to the public. Committee members are comprised of District 10 board members and community members. Upcoming meeting dates, times and locations are posted on the District 10 meeting calendar.

Community Assessment Report- December 2012

District 10 intern, Theo Woehrle, shared a community assessment report on the district plan process at the Tuesday, December 18, 2012 Community Council Meeting. The findings of the assessment show that the majority of identified issues within the Como community fit into one of three main themes:

  1. The District has changing transportation needs and an increased demand for more options.
  2. Como Regional Park is seen as an asset to the community, but attractions, events and development on the Como Park campus do have a disruptive impact on the surrounding community.  
  3. Local business development is desired, but the preservation of District 10's residential identity is seen as a priority.
