You might consider the use of form-based zoning in order to retain any historic buildings and/or uses.  Also, consider higher residential densities in your downtown to encourage new retail and transit-oriented (re)development/retain existing merchants.  Our current zoning ordinance allows multiple-family residential as a permitted use in Des Plaines' downtown district.

    The Village of Burr Ridge is developing a new downtown and we are looking at our options for downtown zoning. We would consider maintaining existing zoning with an overlay district that adds regulations unique to the downtown area.  We would also be interested in hearing of any alternatives for downtown zoning. We are particularly interested in small to mid-size downtowns. Thank you for your assistance.
