Zoning Code Meeting Set for June 5
The City of Amarillo is holding a Zoning Code Revision Project Meeting at 5:30 p.m. on June 5 at the Amarillo Civic Center Grand Plaza.
The Zoning Code Revision Project Meeting is part of the city’s comprehensive plan, adopted in 2010. As part of the plan, the city is undertaking a revision of its zoning ordinance and related regulations, including provisions for signs, subdivisions, manufactured homes and RV parks, landmarks and historic preservation sites and airport height hazards.
The revisions will implement policies and recommendations of the Amarillo Comprehensive Plan, modernize and simplify the ordinance and update regulations based on community input. The revised zoning ordinance will reflect current and anticipated market and neighborhood conditions and incorporate best-practices for development regulation.
The meeting will be an opportunity for the public to learn about the project, ask questions and provide feedback.
The city is working with White & Smith Planning and Law Group and Kendig Keast Collaborative to conduct a comprehensive review, analysis and rewrite of the zoning ordinance and development-related regulations.
The process will begin immediately after the kickoff meeting, taking place in three discrete modules: Zoning, Development Standards and Administrative Procedures. Public input will be received on each module over the next 12 to 15 months. The Zoning Ordinance Revision is anticipated to take 20 months, from May 2019 through December 2020.
