Ordinance Advisory Committee

The Ordinance Advisory Committee was assembled in 2018 to make recommendations to the City Council to consider changes to the Zoning Ordinance and development review process. Their work was completed by the end of 2018 and resulted in a draft report with recommendations. The report was presented to the PC and accepted by the City Council. The recommendations in the report are meant to put a more defined process (as it relates to building and renovations) in place as the community continues to evolve and reinvest in its housing.

Implementation of the study recommendations will include formal ordinance amendments, web site updates, and amendments to the comprehensive plan among other actions. Implementation of these actions will occur through Planning Commission meetings and ultimately be approved by the City Council over the course of 2019.

The report is available here.
