The Municipal Code and associated zoning maps are periodically reviewed and updated. This was a collaborative process whereby we worked together to improve the economic health and livability of the City. After over a year of review by the public, Planning Commission, and elected officials, the code amendments were adopted on July 1, 2009 and became effective on July 31, 2009, with the passage of Ordinance 08—1014.
Ord. 08-1014 additionally setup a six-month update process to review the code language to determine if any sections needed revisions or tweaks that were unforeseen. At the end of the hearing adopting Ord. 08-1014, the City Commission also directed staff to study some outstanding issues and bring them back during the six-month review.
Update: On February 22, 2010, the Planning Commission voted 4-0 to recommend approval of L08-01 6-month update to the City Commission. A link to the February 22, 2010 Agenda with recommended code changes can be found here
