Infill Design Standards meeting

On November 28, 2007, at 5:30 pm, in the City of Davenport Design Center, 102 E. Second Street a meeting is going to be held concerning Infill Design Standards.

 City staff has already developed a preliminary set of standards and is seeking input from a variety of groups including neighborhoods. If you don’t like the ranch house in the middle of a block filled with late nineteenth century buildings, this will be your time to speak up and be heard.

    The ideas for the Infill Design Standards as they are don’t exclude Habitat’s building designs, it just regulates that they find a neighborhood where the design ifts, like ridgeview, where there are many open lots.

    We’re going to take a wait and see attitude, but we have a feeling that Habitat will continue to infill older neighborhoods with their unsuitable ranch style houses. We hope we are wrong.

    Cruiser – I think the infill standards would have a positive affect on that front. If all goes according to plan they would have difficulty building an infill within an older neighborhood unless they adapt their floorplans. This Design standards plan is hopefully a positive step toward preventing Habitat from continuing on the status quo.
