Body
BACKGROUND:

City Council directed the Planning Board to review Article IX of the Land Development Code (LDC) regarding Site Development, Site Improvement, and Site Amendment Plans and the approval process.

On May 7 and July 2 of 2021, the Planning Board reviewed Article IX with staff's recommended changes. The Planning Board made minor language changes, clarifying some of the text while removing ambiguity to the requirements. The Planning Board also recommended two amendments that change the final approval of site plans. The key changes are:

Line 295-296. The Planning Board shall make the final decision regarding the approval of site plans that meet the requirements of the Land Development Code. (Previously City Council)

Line 1002-1005. Amendment's ten percent (10 %) or less to a Site Development Plans (SDP) or Site Improvement Plan (SIP) regarding intensity, architecture, parking, and/or landscaping, as determined by the director, may be reviewed by City staff as the final approval. (Previously City Council)

CITY COUNCIL ( FIRST READING)

The City Council held the first reading on August 16. The Council voted 6-1 to bring forward the existing language for the second reading. Chairman Grifoni did ask about the appeals process if the applicant was not happy with the Planning Board's decision. The Circuit Court would be the avenue for appeal.

PLANNING BOARD
The Planning Board considered the changes to the LDC at the July 2, 2021, meeting. The Planning Board voted 6-1 to forward a recommendation of approval with their recommended changes.
