The Urban County Council will hold a special public hearing to determine an ND-1 District designation for The Old Colony neighborhood, located off of Versailles Road in southwest Fayette County, at 6 p.m. March 5 in the council chambers.
Perry Bozarth, the president of the community’s neighborhood association, said it has been a four-year process to get to this stage.
Different from an H-1 overlay, the ND-1 option allows a neighborhood to select from 15 specific design standards that can be customized to a particular neighborhood’s needs.
“This is nothing compared to H-1,” he said. “We aren’t doing anything that says you can’t put in certain types of windows or certain types of doors, or those sort of things.”
