Participation in the zoning code steering committee is an ideal way to serve your community as you will be ensuring local zoning regulations are achieving the goals recently established in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The Committee is anticipated to meet approximately 5 to 8 times over an 18-month time-frame, and each meeting can be expected to last around two hours. Leading up to each meeting, members will be asked to review multiple pages of new draft zoning code language. Some existing zoning provisions which work well will be moved into the new code organization unchanged, some language will be amended for clarity, and some language will be brand new to address modern-day challenges that didn’t exist when our current zoning ordinance was penned in the mid-1970’s. At every step, you as a steering committee member will be asked to represent your fellow citizens, and your feedback will ensure staff is always moving in the right direction with any proposed updates and changes.
Applications will be accepted until 4:30 PM on April 23, 2021. Applications and related materials will be reviewed by the City Manager. Recommended applicants will be forwarded to the City Council for approval.
