An Act To Encourage the Redevelopment of Upper Floors of Buildings in Downtowns and on Main Streets

CONCEPT DRAFT

SUMMARY

This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.

1. Assessing current community needs and environmental impacts of the regulations;

2. Lessening the impact of excessive parking requirements for buildings in downtowns and on main streets; and

3. Extending so-called grandfather provisions relating to the reuse of upper floors of buildings in downtowns and on main streets.
