Urban Core Residential District

As part of implementation of the 2015 Manhattan Urban Area Comprehensive Plan, the Urban Core Residential (UCR) land use designation was established to allow high-density and university-oriented housing with mixed-use neighborhood scale commercial space in close proximity to the university and Aggieville. The Comprehensive Plan identifies a five-block area east of North Manhattan Avenue as the location for implementation of this district.

To better understand the vision of the district, you may now view the draft UCR District regulations and the draft UCR Sign regulations. You may also watch the City Commission Meeting about the UCR District where an overview of the concept is presented and discussed, starting at 38:55.

Public hearing for adoption of the district and rezoning of the area is expected to begin mid 2017.

For comments or questions concerning this future district, please contact Long Range Planner Ben Chmiel at 785-587-2438.
