18.2.V Purpose of the CCN (Convention Center Neighborhood) Overlay District

The purpose of the CCN (Convention Center Neighborhood) Overlay District is to promote the development of the land adjacent to the Convention Center and overlooking the Mississippi River to create an inclusive, walkable, mixed-use, and mixed-income neighborhood that provides public benefits such as open spaces; district-based stormwater management systems; the incorporation of traffic analysis and planning for multi-modal transportation opportunities; affordable and workforce housing; and building design standards tailored for the development. This is to be principally accomplished through allowances for height, bulk, yard, area, parking, and uses similar to those found in Article 17. Central Business Districts.
