This report contains land use findings for the Central City Plan Area. Information is included for both the Plan Area as a whole and for individual districts. Generally, the findings summarize the results of the 1985 Central City Land Use Inventory. The Methodology section describes that inventory, and also includes definitions, information on limitations of the data, and a list of land use and zoning classifications. It is followed by the findings for the Plan Area (Section IV) and Section V, which contains findings for the districts. Section VI discusses development/redevelopment potential within the Central City and the districts. The final two sections contain tables related to the land use findings and the development/redevelopment potential findings. Summary land use findings for the Plan Area and each district follow this introduction.

There are six subsections within each district findings section. The Overview offers a general description of the area. The next subsection describes the Comprehensive Plan designations/zoning within the area, followed by the subsection on land uses and building uses. The subsection entitled "Comprehensive Plan Designations and Land/Building Uses" describes the uses of land and buildings by Comprehensive Plan designation. For example, this subsection analyzes how much of the land that is zoned industrial is actually used for industrial, or how much of the industrial building square footage is on land that is or is not zoned for industrial. Assessed values for land and buildings, and the characteristics of vacant land and buildings within each district make up the final two subsections
