LU 16-0035: Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map Corrections

Project Description

Legislative amendments to the Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map to correct conflicts between the two maps. Amendments are proposed to some Comprehensive Plan designations (Public “P”, Semi Public “SP”, Open Space “OS”, and Park “PK”) to provide clearer direction for zoning and to allow for more accurate and predictable application of city land use planning policy.  Definitions for these Comprehensive Plan Map designations will be added to the Comprehensive Plan glossary.
