12South Area to get Detailed Neighborhood Design Plan

I’ve long been a fan of the 12South area, having gone there for years now on Tuesday nights for Mafiaoza’s 2-for-1 beers. Lately, I’ve occasionally been hitting 12South Taproom after work for their jazz happy hour as well. So as a frequent visitor I was intrigued to read today that Metro is planning to implement a Detailed Neighborhood Design Plan for the area, which could potentially include “down-zoning of residential space to prevent multi-family developments, or a conservation overlay to protect historic structures.”

For the most part I think this is probably a good idea, but at the same time I don’t think it would hurt to have some low-rise, higher-density housing along 12th Avenue in that area, either. Regardless, it will be interesting to watch this process as it goes along and see what kinds of plans get put in place for this vital and quickly-growing district.
