General Commercial

The General Commercial (GC) land use designation establishes areas for lower-intensity commercial uses intended to meet the needs of nearby residents and employees. Permitted uses include retail, service commercial, restaurants and cafes, offices, and limited low-intensity auto-related uses. General Commercial uses are in targeted locations where higher-intensity uses and development are not appropriate and where low-intensity commercial businesses have minimal impact on adjacent residential areas. The design of buildings in General Commercial districts should encourage pedestrian access and be compatible with surrounding uses in terms of scale and appearance.

Development Standard: Maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 1.0
