Zoning changes are processed through the Planning Commission, which makes recommendations to the City Council.
Changes to the zoning code and/or text require a minimum of 20 days public notification.
Staff will place the notice in a local paper, mail notification to owners of property within 300 feet of the subject property and contract for posting of a sign on the property. The applicant is required to provide a 300-foot ownership list certified by an abstracting company.
The application fee runs from $100 to $200 depending on the intensity of the proposed use; the fee for sign posting is $50. Costs for the ownership list, newspaper publication and mail out vary but typically run in the range of $150.
Typical processing time from application to City Council action is approximately 45 days.
