Zoning & Sign Code Rewrite
Houseal Lavigne Associates, LLC is tasked with rewriting the Zoning and Sign Ordinance. The Zoning and Sign Ordinances have not been comprehensively updated since 1996. Many changes have occurred in the past 23 years, making it necessary for ordinances to change. The Zoning Ordinance contains standards that are outdated, difficult to administer, and is not user-friendly. The current Ordinance does not address many modern standards such as mixed-use development and sustainability.
The Zoning and Sign Ordinance will provide a user-friendly, easy-to-read document that can be understood and interpreted by all users through graphics, illustrations, text, and tables.
On December 7, 2020, the Plan Commission participated in a virtual workshop to review and discuss proposed changes to articles 1, 2, and 9. If viewing the YouTube video, please start at time stamp 55:00 as Houseal Lavigne Associates, LLC and Ancel Glink presented these articles and their proposed changes to the Plan Commission. The Plan Commission continued their discussion regarding article 7 of the Sign Standards. These draft ordinance are not posted at this time as the Plan Commission comments are not incorporated into the drafts; however, the proposals can be found in the Plan Commission's December packet (large file size due to development proposals).
On October 5, 2020, the Plan Commission participated in a virtual workshop to review and discuss proposed changes to articles 6 and 7. If viewing the YouTube video, please start at time stamp 2:32:00 as Houseal Lavigne Associates presented these articles and their proposed changes to the Plan Commission who had several questions regarding the Sign Standards.
