New McCall Master Plan Looks at Building Height, Proposed Boardwalk

Posted By on Mon, Dec 30, 2013 at 9:17 AM

The resort community of McCall isn't exactly known for its skyscrapers. But the Valley County city's new master plan puts particular emphasis on building height.

This week's McCall Star-News reports that the master plan—unanimously approved by the McCall City Council earlier this month—recommends changing the city's current 35-foot height limit on buildings.

The old plan paid more attention to the strict height limit, leading some developers to build low ceilings on retail or restaurant space in order to meet the limit. But the new plan is calling for buildings to be limited to a certain number of floors rather than just a specific height.

The Star-News reports that another highlight of the new master plan is the development of a new lakefront boardwalk from Legacy Park to Art Roberts Park and beyond.

The new master plan replaces McCall's old development blueprint, which was adopted in 1997.
