At Tuesday night's meeting, an advisory committee will recommend that buildings along Water, Market and Main streets get a special use permit to build the 101-foot height that is currently allowed. The reason behind this is to keep adequate sunlight on the pedestrian corridor.
"We like clutter downtown in terms of having the real urban landscape, but we want to keep it at a pedestrian scale because that's what we're building for and that's the charm of downtown," said advisory committee member Kay Slaughter.
The planning commission will hear the proposal at Tuesday's meeting and decide whether to open it up to a public hearing.
