19.26.010 Purpose and intent

            The purpose of the mixed-use/transit oriented development (MU-TOD) zoning district is to provide locations for developments near transit centers that allow concentrations of commercial, retail, and multiple-family residential uses that can take advantage of public transportation facilities.  By allowing a mix of uses, non-residential development can create jobs, shopping, and entertainment opportunities for residents while residential development can generate twenty-four (24) hour vitality in support of the non-residential uses.  This zoning district also uses the demand for higher density development generated by mixed-use design to help accomplish Layton's land preservation goals through the voluntary use of transfer of development rights.
