The Planning Team is pleased to announce that on April 7, 2011 the Environmental Planning Commission voted (5-3) for a Recommendation of Approval to the City Council for the Downtown Neighborhood Area Sector Development Plan. Attached to this email is the Official Notice of Decision, this contains the findings and conditions that the EPC voted to recommend to City Council.

With a recommendation of approval, the DNA SDP now moves on to review by the City Council (Please note, the date for the first LUPZ hearing has not yet been scheduled). The plan will first be reviewed by the Land Use, Planning and Zoning Committee (LUPZ). Plans typically receive two hearings at LUPZ, which can then recommend the Plan to Council for approval, and one to two hearings at City Council.

Public, staff, and agencies will have an opportunity to submit comments for consideration of the draft plan submitted to the City Council, as well as providing comments in writing or in person for Council hearings. The public is encouraged to attend hearings to share comments about the plan. Written comments can also be submitted as testimony. You may present comments verbally at the LUPZ and/or City Council hearings and /or send written comments to the clerk of the Council, Crystal Ortega, for inclusion in the file. Written comments may be submitted up to two weeks prior to the next public hearing for inclusion in staff reports. Written comments may also be submitted in person the day of the hearing for consideration. Comments received after a public hearing will be included in the case file to be considered at the next step in the approval process.
