Meeting Dates

The Zoning Ordinance amendment is a comprehensive update of the current Zoning Ordinance, which was adopted in 1981. The Ordinance is over 30 years old, and has been amended only a few times. The current Zoning Ordinance was written prior to development of the Loop 101 freeway within the Community and was based on policy framework from the Community's 1978 General Plan. The General Plan has subsequently been updated three times over the past three decades. The current 2006 General Plan lists updating the Zoning Ordinance as its first implementation action to ensure consistency with the General Plan's goals and objectives.

The main theme of the General Plan is establishing a framework for social, economic and environmental sustainability. The proposed new Zoning Ordinance carries out the objectives of the General Plan by providing regulations to help reduce heat island effects, light pollution, overuse of water; limiting and providing extra scrutiny of industrial uses; and incorporating Piipaash and Au Authmn cultural values into development design. This zoning update project, a.k.a., the Zoning Ordinance and Design Update (ZODU), began in late 2009 using internal government staff and focused on non-residential regulations, which make up most of the provisions of the Code, though there are some changes made to the agricultural and residential provisions of the Code, such as including the reduction in minimum home site sizes.

In addition to the Zoning Ordinance amendment, additional technical amendments to Chapter 17 and 18 are necessary to maintain consistency with the Code of Ordinances and the proposed Zoning Amendment.
