Districts

Districts are where the most significant employment, housing and mixed use activity will take place in the future.  These areas will contain a diverse mix of commercial, office, residential and civic uses.   Districts will also be planned to be the most transit supportive areas within Olathe.  Compared to Neighborhoods and Corridors, Districts are more general in nature and are not intended to precisely correspond to existing or future zoning District boundaries. Districts are intended to be intense areas, each with their own special character.  As discussed in Chapter 6, unique zoning tools will help fulfill the intent of these areas.  These may include design guidelines, performance standards and overlay zoning tools.
