Outreach Highlights: The Mixed Use Commercial Area has a variety of different areas, each with certain trends, opportunities, challenges. It is a good idea to encourage uses that complement and add value to each other. Outreach participants thought the Character Areas approach as a good way to do this. Use specific conditions or not allow some uses to ensure that uses complement and add value to each other. Limit manufacturing and general industrial uses in all areas except McKellips Road east of Dobson Road. Limit light industrial in areas around the Casinos and north of the Arizona Canal.
