Update on the Land Availability and Suitability Study and Code Analysis Project
For discussion only. 

The purpose of the LASS/CAP project is to understand what land is available within the Flagstaff city limits for development and redevelopment/infill and the barriers that exist, and to analyze City development codes and processes to identify what works well and where are the barriers to meeting the City's housing and sustainability goals and policies. The outcome of the analysis is to identify priority sites for residential development, as well as a list of prioritized, recommended code changes.

The last few months have been spent collecting GIS data, compiling development codes and processes, and building a policy matrix. We have also identified Technical Advisory Committees, comprised of internal City staff from multiple Divisions/Sections, for both the LASS and the CAP. This has been critical work for building the base to complete project tasks. This presentation will provide an in-depth on the work done to date and what are the next steps.
