Proposed Amendments to Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances

Post Date:08/11/2017 2:00 PM

City staff has prepared draft amendments to the City’s Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances.  The Zoning Ordinance includes the City’s land development regulations (for example, permitted uses by zoning district and standards for lot size, building height, and required yard and setback provisions). The Subdivision Ordinance regulates the process for dividing or consolidating land into lots.

New Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances became effective October 1, 2016.  The proposed amendments are part of the regular review and maintenance of the ordinances. The draft amendments are available for review through the links below or may be viewed in the Community Development and Planning Department office, Room 207 in the City Hall Annex.
