Option 1 — development density
Construct or renovate building on a previously developed site AND in a community with a minimum density of 60,000 square feet per acre net (Note: density calculation must include the area of the project being built and is based on a typical two-story downtown development).
Option 2 — community connectivity
Construct or renovate building on a previously developed site AND within 1/2 mile of a residential zone or neighborhood with an average density of 10 units per acre net AND within 1/2 mile of at least 10 basic sServices AND with pedestrian access between the building and the services.
Basic services include, but are not limited to:
- Place of worship;
- Convenience grocery;
- Day care;
- Fire station;
- Senior care facility;

Proximity is determined by drawing a 1/2 mile radius around the main building entrance on a site map and counting the services within that radius.
