Community Development and Zoning
The City is a planned community whose future is directed by the Master Plan, which is regularly reviewed and updated by the Planning Commission.
The Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) outlines a schedule of public service expenditures over the ensuing five-year period and beyond.
Zoning in the City is governed by the Zoning Ordinance, as recommended by the Planning Commission and adopted by the City Council.
Site Plan Review and approval is required for all proposed uses and structures within the City, except for single-family detached dwellings and accessory structures, such as fences and garages. The Site Plan Review process is a convenient three (3) step process that start with a Pre-Application Meeting, followed by Preliminary Site Plan and Final Site Plan Reviews. Click the following highlighted text for a copy of the City's Site Plan Review Flow Chart.
- Administrative Site Plan Review may be allowed in the following cases:
- Expansion or reduction of an existing conforming structure/use measuring less than 1,000 sq. ft. or less.
- Changes of use within an existing building, provided the use is a permitted use within the zoning district of the site.
- Provision for additional parking, loading/unloading spaces and landscape improvements required by Ordinance.
