How is the community being involved and informed?

Code changes involve a great deal of community outreach to make sure everyone has a chance to understand what’s happening, get their questions answered, and share their views on the proposals. In addition to other mailings, meetings, and events, code changes require official notice to all affected property owners as well as an official public hearing at both the Planning Commission and City Council level. Official public notice requires letters to be mailed to property owners and occupants within 500 feet of the district, as well as advertisement in the local newspaper.
