In summary of the new rules… Lakecrest Drive is now zoned for residential; Main Street and Tacoma Drive can now permit residential space above commercial, and new rules allow some properties to have a residential look with the option of a small business.  Some restrictions in place for all properties in The Village on Main include: no pawn shops and no adult entertainment.  The new rules only apply to new developments. All properties and businesses that currently exist in The Village on Main are grandfathered

We have created an Interactive Guide & Map for Housing & Development. It is an interactive document meant to accomplish two things: 1. to inform developers of the opportunities and by-laws present within the Village on Main (also known as the Main Street Designation), and 2. to educate residents about the district and the expected transformations of the near and distant future. 

To help you understand the changes that have taken place in The Village on Main over the last couple of years, we have created a VOM Development Activity Map that shows the number of properties that have had the following happen:
