Planning & Zoning


The Planning and Zoning Commission is a statutory committee comprised of five regular members and three alternate members. Predominantly an advisory committee to the City Council, it hears requests for Planned Developments, Specific Use Permits, amendments to the Zoning Ordinance, and platting requests. The Commission's decision is then forwarded to the City Council for final action.

Public Hearings

The Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z) typically meets on the second Tuesday of the month in the City Council Chamber of City Hall, 3800 University Blvd. Occasionally, depending on workload, P&Z will meet more than or less than once a month. P&Z holds public hearings to consider rezoning requests, replat requests (involving 4 or more lots) and amendments to the University Park Zoning Ordinance. All requests to be heard at P&Z must be accompanied by the following:

  • A completed application
  • Two complete sets of project plans (24x36) and one complete set of project plans (11x17)
  • Electronic version of complete set of plans. Flash drive is acceptable. Content and type of plans will be determined by staff after preliminary project review
  • $300 filing fee
Once the application & submittal has been determined to be in accordance with City requirements, the request will be placed on the next available P&Z agenda and an advertisement of public hearing will be made. After P&Z has made a recommendation the request moves on to City Council where a second public hearing is opened, before a final determination is made. Filing deadlines are 30 days prior to the meeting date. This information is contained in the meeting schedule.
