In an effort to streamline the development process, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority approved Tourism District master plan amendments they hope will attract new businesses.
The board approved the amendments during its hearing Tuesday afternoon. They will be used to develop land-use ordinances over the next year.
Under the amendment, new zones would allow mixed uses in the Southeast Inlet, entertainment along Kentucky Avenue, art studios in the Ducktown section and retail development around the Atlantic City Expressway and its waterfront.
The land-use regulations’ 25 objectives include providing a zoning scheme to catalyze development and maintain public confidence in the casino gaming industry as a unique tool of the city’s urban redevelopment.
