About the Plan

Subarea 2 map

The Planning Commission adopted the Southeast Community Plan in July 2004. The Commission recognized during review and adoption that some of the community's infrastructure could not accommodate expected development, so an Infrastructure Deficiency Area Policy (IDA) was added to support potential growth.

The IDA policy requires that developers planning projects in certain areas of the Southeast community provide roadway improvements within the existing public right of way, with total linear footage and location of those improvements determined by the policy's guidelines.

The Community Plan document includes the IDA policy guidelines and all changes and amendments to the Plan through April 2014.

Related change in the Antioch-Priest Lake Community Plan

The 2012 update to the Antioch/Priest Lake Community Plan included a plan amendment and policy recommendation for the Cane Ridge area west of Interstate 24.

On August 14, 2008, the Planning Commission approved a new land-use document, the Community Character Manual, which replaces the Land Use Policy Application. The CCM will be used as community plans and amendments are updated in Subarea 12.

Urban Design Overlays (UDOs)

The Southeast is home to 3 Urban Design Overlays. 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.
