  • Ordinances for small-scale Comprehensive Plan amendments that amend the Future Land Use Map series and related text amendments.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Here the revised code separates small-scale as involving ten acres or less.

Our current code calls for one Community Development Board hearing and two Commission Hearings. The revised code takes out one Commission Hearing.

Here the revised code reduces 2 commission hearings to only one commission hearing.

There are no “mailed notices” or “posted notices” as required by our current code. 

 

  • Ordinances initiated by an applicant other than the City to Change the actual Official Zoning Map designation of a parcel or parcels

Our current code requires 2 commission hearings. The proposed change would only require one.  Mailed Notice is included but will be sent only 14 days before the hearing where our current code calls for 30 days. The Posted Notice is the same as our current code.

 

  • Change in Land Development Regulations that revise permitted, conditional or prohibited uses

Although the number of Public Hearings remain the same, only one of the City Commission meetings will be held after 5pm.

There are no “mailed notices” or “posted notices” as required by our current code.

 

  • Ordinances initiated by the City that change the actual zoning map designation for a parcel or parcels of land involving ten (10) contiguous acres or more.

Mailed Notice is included and will be sent 30 days before the hearing. There is no Posted Notice.

 

  • Ordinances initiated by the City that change the actual zoning map designation for a parcel or parcels of land involving less than ten (10) contiguous acres.
