A zoning overlay is an addition to the zoning code that provides an optional set of rules that can be used for property use and development. Owners would be able to choose the overlay rules or the previous underlying zoning code.
The Stay in Bay mixed use zoning overlay was developed over 18 months with several public input meetings and many Bay Village Planning Commission working sessions. The Planning Commission approved the overlay and recommended it to City Council, which unanimously approved it on June 28, 2021.
The overlay was approved by Bay Village voters in the November 2, 2021 election.
