Project Overview
In 2019, Calfee Zoning was hired as part of a team led by Yard & Company to assess the zoning regulations governing the Main Street District in the City of Florence, Kentucky.

It had been nearly thirty years since the Main Street District regulations had been adopted. Utilizing the planning vision of the City’s steering committee and core planning documents, Calfee Zoning reviewed each regulation governing the City’s Main Street District to determine whether the provision (i) advanced the planning vision; (ii) had a neutral impact on the planning vision; or (iii) served as a barrier to the planning vision.

The final diagnostic report incorporated summary conclusions and recommendations for overhauling the Main Street District regulations to ensure that the district develops as a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented destination in Northern Kentucky. The findings in the diagnostic report will serve as a foundation for codifying new zoning regulations that will govern the Florence Main Street District moving forward.
