Four sessions are scheduled for residents seeking more information about the first draft of the updated zoning ordinance.

The community is invited to stop in, share comments and talk directly to the project team in an informal setting.

Residents are invited to drop-in, ask questions and submit suggestions at a series of open houses in May. For those wanting to learn more about the first draft, displays will be set up to explain the components of the draft and brief presentations have been scheduled at each location. Check the schedule for presentation times. For anyone unable to attend the open houses, there are two additional meetings that are open to the public.

The first draft is open for public comment through May 21.
