The City of Temple has adopted an overlay district for the South 1st Street and North 3rd Street Corridor to promote enhanced development and redevelopment in this very important corridor through Temple.
The overlay incorporates enhanced public realm requirements such as wider sidewalks and street trees with decorative lighting as well as incorporates minimal enhanced standards for on-site development including landscaping and smaller signs. The overlay does not change or amend any zoning or uses that are currently permitted in the area. Read the Unified Development Code Sec. 6.8.
The 1st and 3rd Street Overlay is generally defined as tracts of land that abut or adjoin South 1st Street from the north intersection of Avenue M to the north intersection of Avenue D and tracts of land that abut or adjoin North 3rd Street from the north intersection of Houston Avenue to the south intersection with West Bellaire North.
