Special Council Meeting Called for October 24th to Consider the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance

October 22, 2014

The City Council's adoption of a new Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) is a multi-step process that was begun years ago. The most recent substantive step in this process was the City Planning Commission's recommendations to the City Council. The next step will occur on Friday, October 24, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. in the Council Chamber. This step is for the Council to consider a Motion to adopt the City Planning Commission's recommendations. The Council does not expect to substantively amend the recommendations at this time.

Instead, the city's law department will draft an Ordinance (the new CZO) based on the Motion as passed. All substantive changes will be made at a future meeting to be held after the adoption of the 2015 budget and after additional opportunities for public comment. All changes will be made in the form of amendments to the Ordinance. Please note that all public comment made at Friday's meeting will be received by the Council and considered for incorporation into the Ordinance amendments. Passage of the Ordinance will codify the changes to the CZO.
