The Annexation Plan establishes the framework for decisions concerning annexation of land into the City of Colorado Springs. Coupled with the Comprehensive Plan's policies, the 2020 Land Use Map and the City's Strategic Plan, this document will guide future applicants who seek to annex property into the City. Also, this plan will communicate the City's annexation policies and intentions to interested citizens and other stakeholders.
MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT DESIGN MANUAL
The City's new Comprehensive Plan was approved on March 27, 2001. One of the most prominent features of the Comprehensive Plan is the emphasis it gives to developing centers of activity that mix different uses, similar in many ways to our Downtown or to Old Colorado City.
TRADITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT
The purpose of the Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) zone is to create a residential Zoning Classification that encourages a pattern of neighborhood development that was commonly built in Colorado Springs prior to World War II. Overall, the TND zone is intended to promote the development of a neighborhood with a sense of place. It also embodies many of the objectives included in the City's Comprehensive Plan. This zone district includes both design standards (mandatory elements of a traditional neighborhood) and design guidelines (desired elements of a traditional neighborhood, which may vary depending on the individual development).
