Each year the city considers amendments to the comprehensive plan and zoning map. These amendments can be requested by citizens, business owners, City Council, or staff. The City Council
considers the list of proposed amendments and based on available resources, determines which suggestions will be considered and in what priority.
If you are interested in discussing a change to the comprehensive plan or development regulations please contact Principal Planner Margaret Clark
: Comprehensive plan and zoning map amendment requests must be submitted and docketed by September 30 of a given year to be considered in the following year.
