Public Hearing AMD22-1: Land Use Code Text Amendment
The City Council will hold a public hearing to consider an ordinance for a LAND USE CODE TEXT AMENDMENT to amend Title 9, known as the Land Development Code. The city adopted Ordinance 374-16, which created a new Land Development Code and Zone Map, which was last amended by Ordinance 430-21 in August 2021. Amendments are proposed for various chapters of the Land Development Code and are specifically identified on the city website and at City Hall. The purpose of the proposed Land Development Code Amendments is to implement recommendations from the 2022 Housing Needs Assessment and 2019 Affordable Housing Strategic Plan to address the lack of workforce housing and affordable housing in the community by creating subdivision and accessory dwelling unit bonus incentives for workforce and affordable housing and by adding affordable housing mitigation standards for consideration during an upzone and/or annexation request. The proposed changes would be in effect city-wide, if adopted. Detailed information is available on the AMD22-1: Land Use Code Text Amendment Page
