Item: Highway to Hayden: Proposed building code along Government Way causing controversy/Amy Cannata, SR Handle Extra
More Info: The downtown Hayden transformation started last year with sidewalks and street trees could rebuild more than a mile of Government Way over the next two decades into a pedestrian-centered urban core with storefronts along the street, parking in the back and enhanced public spaces. Many of the changes are contingent on passage of a proposed Central Business District Overlay Ordinance. That ordinance would impose stringent building and design standards on properties flanking Government Way between Prairie Avenue and Miles Avenue. It’s a bold effort for the city of 13,000 people – one that is not without controversy.
Question: What do you think of Hayden’s new downtown look?
