Development Standards

The Town Center code (aka “BC/D zoning code” or Downtown code”) is primarily a form-based code. Along with Design Standards, it guides development in the City's commercial Town Center, also known as "downtown," which lies roughly between 228th Street SW on the north, 244th Street SW on the south, 55th Avenue W on the east and 58th Avenue W on the west.

It is zoned for downtown business use. The code focuses on building and site dimensions, parking spaces and land uses. The Town Center Design Standards (PDF) focus on architectural and pedestrian features that help ensure attractive, good quality development suitable for a downtown area.
