Planning Commission recommends amendment to Historic Preservation Ordinance to City Council
In a 5-0 vote this past Monday, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval to the City Council for a zone text amendment designed to update and strengthen the Historic Preservation Ordinance. The proposed historic preservation cultural resource ordinance will replace the current ordinance and will outline criteria and procedures for designation as well as the creation of a stand alone commission. The commission would administer the city's Historic Preservation Ordinance and make recommendations to the City Council on preservation-related items.

The Planning Commission also heard applications for several Conditional Use Permits to allow for existing massage establishments to continue their operations. More information from Monday's meeting can be found in the link below.
