The Zoning Code Commission held the first of two additional public meetings Friday.
During last week’s ZCC meeting, stakeholders in the zoning revision process, from community groups to developers, complained vigorously that the commission had not given direct reasons for integrating feedback into the new code, or for rejecting it. The public meetings today and on Feb. 28 are intended to address how the ZCC considered public comments in its rewrite of the code.
The ZCC’s “preliminary report” sends its draft of the new zoning code for City Council’s consideration. Once Council receives the report, it has 45 days to hold its first public hearing to discuss the new code, but the body is not bound to a specific deadline by which it must close such a hearing or hearings.
UPCOMING ZCC MEETINGS:
Monday, February 28, 2:00 p.m. 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor, Room 18-029
The ZCC will discuss its consideration of public comments with stakeholders.
Wednesday, March 2, 8:00 a.m. 1401 JFK Boulevard, 14th Floor, Room 1450
The ZCC will vote on whether to send its Preliminary Report to Council.
