  • This document identifies issues with the current Zoning Ordinance and establishes a proposed approach to the zoning rewrite.
  • The community review and comment period for the report will extend from June 16 (the day the report was posted) through August 2022. 
  • Please note that we have not yet developed a draft zoning map or draft zoning text. The Report outlines a proposed set of changes and the purpose of this event and the summer community comment period is to gather input on this approach before we share a draft zoning map and text.
