On Jan. 23, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on proposed changes related to development procedures proposed for the new Unified Development code. Sarah Warnock, Chair-Elect of LBAR told the Commission LBAR strongly supports the new code both conceptually and specifically in terms of the proposed procedures. Ms. Warnock was the only member of the public to attend and comment during the public hearing.
The Commission was generally supportive of the procedures although a few minor changes were suggested. The next task relates to new infill and corridor design standards. A committee of local stakeholders will have its first opportunity to discuss this topic on February 16. The City Council is reviewing each task or component of the Unified Code separately at a study session and will adopt the Code in entirety using the public hearing process later this year.
