Vision Silver Lake Road 2040 Project

The City of New Brighton's Comprehensive Plan (PDF), adopted in 2019, identified three of the City's existing commercial nodes along Silver Lake Road as potential areas of improvement. Per this new plan, all three of these areas are now eligible to be redeveloped with a mix of residential, commercial, office, and civic uses. The Silver Lake Road Mixed-Use Planning project will provide the City with needed input to form the zoning districts that will govern these areas.

This project has three parts and we are currently in the process of starting part II. Your input will help shape the vision for all three nodes and will allow the City to draft new zoning regulations to govern future redevelopment requests.

Part One (Wrapped in October 2021)

The first portion of the study is focused on informing residents about each area of potential change, and obtaining input on how future redevelopment should look in terms of form, character, and amenities. View the results of this community outreach (PDF).

Part Two (Up Now!)

Using everything we heard during the initial round of public input, the consultants leading Vision Silver Lake Road 2040 have now prepared illustrative concept plans for each mixed-use area to elicit additional comments and feedback from the Community. The illustrative concepts created for the Vision Silver Lake Road 2040 project are not development plans and they do not show desired changes to the built environment. Each concept is simply a single representation of potential development incorporating design aspects sought by the public during Phase I of the study. Illustrating initial public feedback in this manner allows us to elicit additional comments (to make sure we're on the right track) which in turn will allow the City to craft proper zoning standards for the new mixed-use areas.

Part Three (Anticipated Early July)

Feedback from Phase II of engagement will be compiled by hired consultants and shared with the City Council and the public as soon as possible. Once staff receives the compiled results of the last round of feedback, Assistant Director of Community Assets and Development, Ben Gozola will use this information to start writing the new zoning code. Your input will help shape the vision for all three nodes and will allow the City to draft new zoning regulations to govern future redevelopment requests. The end goal is high-quality redevelopment that integrates well with surrounding areas.
