12.1.C Purpose of the HU-MU Neighborhood Mixed-Use District

The HU-MU Neighborhood Mixed-Use District is intended for areas of mixed-use development that are close to residential neighborhoods. The district regulations are designed to encourage mixed-use areas that are compatible with adjacent or nearby land uses and pedestrian-oriented in character. In the HU-MU District, active retail and personal service uses along the ground floor with residential uses above are encouraged. A variety of residential dwellings are also allowed. This district also allows higher residential densities when a project is providing significant public benefits such as long-term affordable housing.
