The “wayfinding” improvement project is an action item outlined in the Downtown Austin Plan adopted by City Council in December 2011.

(Video) Zoning Matters: How Land-Use Policies Shape Our Lives

“Wayfinding” explores ways to navigate from one place to another, and focuses on highlighting the experience of the path and eventual arrival of the wayfinding user. The system will underscore downtown’s unique and eclectic identity, as well as improve movement for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. Additional archived resources are below.

Zoning is the division of land within a jurisdiction into separate districts within which uses are permitted, prohibited or permitted with conditions. Brief definitions of the different types of uses and structures as relates to zoning are explained here.

Zoning establishes site regulations, such as building heights, bulk (density/floor-to-area ratio), setbacks, building coverage, impervious cover, etc. Zoning is a power granted to municipalities by the State in order to promote public health, safety, morals, or general welfare, and to protect and preserve places and areas of historical, cultural, or architectural importance and significance.

(Video) U.S. Zoning, Explained

Zoning Districts (Web) are established to promote compatible patterns of land use within the city limits. Zoning districts also establish site development regulations and performance standards appropriate to the purposes and the uses allowed in each district. Distinct zoning districts exist for residential, office, retail and industrial uses. Furthermore, specific use restrictions, site development regulations or performance standards may apply to zoning districts combined with special overlay or combining districts.

As part of the zoning process, appropriate land uses for an area are identified based on such factors as the intensity, density, height of a proposed project, surrounding land uses, traffic impacts and access to a site, environmental concerns and overall compatibility. An illustration of Compatibility: Height and Setbacks (PDF)shows how compatibility applies to surrounding properties.

Section 25-2-492 of the Land Development Code (Web) establishes site development regulations for each zoning district.
