Code Writing Program Update
Our new Program and Development Associate Brendan Conboy has been actively staying abreast of the code writing processes in Victor and Driggs, attending almost a dozen work sessions already, and offering comment at hearings. (Check out our comment repository.) We call him “Code King” around the office – he is amassing quite a library of resources on the development of the city codes.
What’s happening in Victor:
The Victor Planning and Zoning Commission has reviewed Articles 1-8 to ensure that they are in compliance with the comprehensive plan and has recommended that they be adopted by the City Council. Articles 1-8 deal with proposed zone districts and development standards including measurements and exceptions, the proposed zone districts including rural residential, mixed use, industrial, and civic/open space definitions, as well as building types.
Victor is currently accepting public comment for the remaining articles 9-15 and the zoning map which deal with land uses and zone district locations in advance of a formal public hearing on Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00pm.
Review of the articles in question and written comment on the code can be submitted in advance of the public hearings by visiting http://www.tetonvalleycode.org or by emailing city planning staff directly. You can reach Victor P&Z administrator, Brittany Skelton at firstname.lastname@example.org
What’s happening in Driggs:
Driggs is also soliciting public comment and will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, November 4th at 6:30pm to discuss Articles 1, 3, and 9-15 which deal with general provisions and the zoning map, rural districts, land uses and zone district locations, as well as site development standards such as parking, landscaping, signs, and lighting. The Driggs Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended that Articles 2, and 4-8 which cover the development standards and proposed zone districts be adopted by ordinance but requested that their recommendation not be sent to the City Council until the Planning and Zoning Commission holds its public hearing for the remaining articles on November 4th.
