09/16 Planning Commission - Finalizing Zoning Code Update

For those who are interested, the proposed Zoning Code Update will have a public hearing before the Planning Commission tomorrow (Monday) night at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers at City Hall. This is one of the final steps prior to adoption, and probably the last, or next-to-last, chance to make any changes in the document. If approved, it will then proceed to City Council for first and second readings - likely at either their 09/24 and 10/08 meetings, or their 10/08 and 10/22 meetings. Once approved on second reading, it should go into effect after 30 days.

The Update will make some significant changes in both residential and commercial areas; it will affect where and how homes and other structures can be built, things that can be done to homes and yards, and the types of businesses that can operate in particular commercial and residential areas.
