Downtown Donelson Urban Design Overlay
The Planning Commission approved the Downtown Donelson Urban Design Overlay on November 2009, and amended it on January 2011 with an adopted policy on sign panel interpretation.
An Urban Design Overlay, or UDO, is a zoning tool that requires specific design standards for development in a designated area. A UDO is used to either protect the pre-existing character of the area or to create a character that would not otherwise be ensured by the development standards in the base zoning district. UDOs overlay the current base zoning and allow for development standards above and beyond those in the base zoning.
