The Planning Commission has initiated legislative amendments to amend the Land Use and Development Code. The Code currently allows Recreational Vehicle Parks and Campgrounds in the Interchange Development Zone and the Industrial Agriculture Zone. However the Code does not contain any design or operational standards that RV Parks or Campgrounds must meet. The Planning Commission is proposing the adoption of such standards. In addition, the amendments would change the definition of Recreational Vehicle, to allow such a unit be used as a residence.
The Planning Commission's public hearing was held on Monday, January 28. Following the public hearing, the Planning Commission requested some changes be made. The Planning Commission reviewed the revised amendment at their February 25 meeting and forwarded the amendments to the City Council. The City Council will hold a second public hearing prior to voting on whether to enact the amendments. The City Council hearing on the proposed amendment was held on March 18. Following the hearing the City Council approved the first consideration of Ordinance 1029, with some modifications. The second consideration of the ordinance will be on April 1.
