New contextual mixed-use development can help complete neighborhoods and centers. To do this, zoning regulations and design guidelines should reflect the character of each neighborhood.
Municipal Comprehensive Plan
Comprehensive Plan Economic Development section can consider infill development as a specific policy for improving the local economy.
Area-specific plans can target particular parts of the municipality for infill redevelopment.
Design guidelines for new infill development to control orientation and design of buildings for new infill developments.
Basic zoning can facilitate new development on constrained infill sites through special site area, height, bulk and setback requirements and reduced parking requirements.
Planned Unit Development (PUD)
Special zoning districts, such as traditional neighborhood design overlay districts, can describe form and placement of new infill developments.
Design review can insure that the character of new infill developments is compatible with adjacent structures.
SEQRA (New York State) mitigation requirements can include impacts of new development on existing neighborhoods.
