City Council Amends Zoning Code to Implement Neighborhood Participation Program
On May 2, City Council adopted the City Planning Commission’s Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for land use actions. However, the final ordinance to amend the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance to implement the NPP was on hold until August 22 when it was approved by City Council in a unanimous vote.
City Planning’s Neighborhood Participation Program will improve the notice that is given to nearby residents and neighborhood organizations. It will also require the developer, business, or applicant to hold a meeting and invite nearby residents and neighborhood groups prior to submitting his or her application to the City Planning Commission. More information, and the entire plan, can be found on the NPP page on City Planning’s website.
