Planning Commission: Proposed Zoning 30-Day Comment Period Begins

Please send any comments to Jon Geeting at jgeeting@nullgmail.com and he will pass them along to the Planning Commission. VIEW MAPS

Today BVNA is kicking off a 30-day comment period for neighbors to weigh in one more time on the zoning maps we got back from the Planning Commission.

Since this past winter, we’ve been collecting feedback from Bella Vista neighbors in several community forums and an online survey to guide the Planning Commission as they update our neighborhood’s zoning map. Zoning rules determine what type of buildings can be built and where, and what people are allowed to do in them, which has a big impact on how our neighborhood grows. Here is a basic guide [PDF] to what the different zoning categories mean.

We’ve been really impressed with the level of engagement in this process, and especially with how much people seem to be on the same page about what makes our neighborhood great, and how it can become even greater in the years ahead.

These new maps are the result of all the community input we received, but we obviously didn’t hear from every person in the neighborhood, so we’ll be collecting feedback for the next 30 days in hopes of getting more voices and any final ideas incorporated into the plan.

Please send any comments to Jon Geeting at jgeeting@nullgmail.com and he will pass them along to the Planning Commission.
