City Embarks on Zoning Code Revision

The first in a series of public workshops was recently held at City Hall as part of an extensive review of the city’s land use regulations. The workshop consisted of a presentation by the planning and engineering firm of Prosser Hallock to the city’s Planning and Zoning Board and members of the public.

The need to review and then where necessary to revise the city’s code in regards to land use regulations was identified by the City Commission and after being awarded the contract to perform the work nearly a year ago, Prosser Hallock began the review.

The early stages of the work, including an extensive study of current regulations, collection of data and drafting of maps, and the development of potential concepts for changes has been ongoing in earnest since the work began in the spring of last year.

The recent presentation and workshop with the Planning and Zoning Board and the public was the first opportunity for many to see the work performed thus far.

A key element of the review and evaluation of the land use rules is the possible revision of zoning regulations from an emphasis based only on use to one that also takes into consideration intensity of the development and the character of the structures and their compatibility with surrounding structures. For some the effect is a more holistic approach to development, particularly in residential areas but also in areas zoned commercial.

The workshop held in January with the Planning & Zoning Board included a detailed presentation which included comparisons of the current regulations and ones that would be form-based. To view that presentation, click here.

In the near future, additional presentations will be held throughout the community offering residents the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the proposed changes and to offer their input.
