DISCUSS PROPOSED CHANGES TO CENTERVILLE ZONING ORDINANCE

Neil Lindberg, an attorney specializing in planning and zoning matters, has been hired to write the new Centerville Zoning Ordinance. Mr. Lindberg reported a steering committee consisting of Brian Hulse, Ken Averett, Aric Jensen, and Lisa Romney has been formed to review Mr. Lindberg’s drafts of the ordinance and provide guidance to Mr. Lindberg.

Mayor Deamer stated the overall goal is to create a model ordinance and have it understandable by the citizens.

PROPOSED OUTLINE

Mr. Lindberg explained the Zoning Ordinance will be written with chapters and sections, and there will be a section on process and administrative rules. The Council and Planning Commission must decide what base zones will be in the Code and he asked the group to consider the content of the outline. Mr. Lindberg explained the difference between administrative and legislative procedures. He also explained that the "trade-off" decisions that must be made when writing a new zoning code are "flexibility vs. predictability."

FORMAT

The Council and Planning Commission approved the proposed format.

DEFINITIONS

Use Definitions

The definitions define what the uses are up-front.

USE TABLE

A "Use Table" will be completed as part of the Code. It is a summary table of all of the uses by zone, in tabular form.

Mr. Lindberg said all of the changes should be completed by the end of 2003, at which time there will be a public hearing. After the public hearing, the current Zoning Ordinance will be appealed and the new ordinance will be enacted.

Steve Thacker explained there will be a copy of the materials for each work session available for public view at City Hall. Any citizen comments should be given in writing to Aric Jensen. A record of all comments will be saved at City Hall.

NEXT MEETING

The next joint City Council/Planning Commission work session will be held on Wednesday, February 19, 2003 at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall. [Note: It was later decided that the next meeting would be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2003 at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall.]

The meeting was adjourned at 7:45 p.m.

 

Marilyn Holje, City Recorder
Connie Larson, Recording Secretary
