About the Zoning Commission

The Zoning Commission is responsible for conducting public hearings related to zoning change requests.  The Commission conducts public hearings and recommends the appropriate boundaries of zoning districts, and recommends changes to the regulation to be enforced in those zoning districts to City Council.  Additionally, the Zoning Commission prepares a final report for the City Council on recommendations for change in zoning district boundaries or regulations in zoning districts.

To learn more, visit the Zoning History and Process Fact Sheet.
