City Council Directs Planning Commission to Update CZO to Implement NPP

Today at it January 10 meeting, City Council approved this motion directing the City Planning Commission (CPC) to update the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) to implement its Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP). There are a lot of programs and acronyms, so what does this all mean?

CPC has spent the last year and a half developing a Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP). The NPP will increase notification requirement for new land use application by mailing notice to property owners within 300 of 600 feet and placing signs on the property. The NPP will also require developers to meet with adjacent residents and neighborhood organizations prior to submitting their application to the City Planning Commission.

In order to implement the NPP, the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) needs to be updated. To do this, City Planning Commission and City Council needs to approve text changes to the CZO. The motion passed today directs the City Planning Commission review the CZO text changes for City Council’s final approval. City Council is expected to approve NPP and CZO changes around March of this year.
