What types of small businesses are permitted in the PR District?

The PR District would allow only limited types of small businesses. Two commercial uses would be permitted by right (Professional Offices and Bed & Breakfast), while a few others would be allowed conditionally (Barber/Beauty/Spa, Day Care Center, and Funeral Home, Professional Office). In contrast, the City’s Commercial Zone allows 41 uses. See the Comprehensive Use Table at 150.41.

The business uses allowed were reduced significantly in the Pedestrian-Residential District due to citizen feedback and were selected because many already exist nearby or in residential neighborhoods; many tend to be lower traffic.
