Master Plan Amendment

For a Master Plan Amendment, the Planning Commission is required to examine the current uses, zoning and master plan designations of a parcel(s) and surrounding area to determine if current conditions or anticipated growth trend would warrant a change to the City's adopted Master Plan.

Master Plan Amendment Process:
  • Application for Master Plan Amendment submittal: A completed application and required fee shall be submitted to the City Planning and Development Department.  After receipt of the completed application and the required fee, your requested amendment will be placed on the next possible City Commission meeting agenda for distribution authorization. City Commission meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of every month at 6:30 p.m. 
  • Distribution Authorization by City Commission:  The City Commission will authorize the distribution of the requested master plan amendment to the County, adjacent municipalities and other agencies for a required 42-day comment period.  After the required 42-day comment period has expired your request will be placed on the next possible Planning Commission meeting agenda for the purpose of a public hearing, with all legal notifications being met, for consideration by the Planning Commission.  The Planning Commission meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
  • Public Hearing: The Planning Commission will conduct the public hearing as scheduled. The applicant or representative is expected to be present to address any questions.  The public is given an opportunity to voice their opinions on the requested Master Plan Amendment.  The Planning Commission will take action by approving, denying, or tabling the request.
