Historic District PZD (Planned Zoning District)

 

The Chaffee Crossing Historic District is a unique area in the middle of Chaffee Crossing development where WWII-era history is combining with modern planning to create a walkable urban community. The Historic District includes two-story WWII-era barracks and single level administration type buildings available for purchase. The Planned Zoning Development (PZD) of the Historic District generally sits between Taylor Ave., Darby Ave. and Terry St. Within the primary district are sub-districts with defined types of businesses permitted. The PZD is pending approval by the City of Fort Smith Board of Directors.
