Zoning Ordinance Revisions - Public Comment

September 18, 2018



Two years ago, a 12-member special committee comprised of residents, local builders and former City Council members began reviewing the City’s existing zoning ordinance. The primary objective of the effort was to improve the document’s regulatory clarity and application consistency. Accordingly, the committee sought input from different stakeholders including additional builders, architects, real estate agents and property owners. 

On September 11, the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission received the suggested ordinance and opened a Public Hearing to receive comments on the revisions. That hearing remains open and additional comments may be submitted through written or electronic mail, or voiced at the next Commission meeting on October 9.  That meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at City Hall (3800 University).  

Learn more about the suggested ordinance.

Following guidance from the Planning and Zoning Commission, the draft document will be presented to the City Council for their consideration.

If you want to send your thoughts about the draft ordinance to the City before the October 9 public hearing, email them to Community Development Planner Jessica Rees at jrees@uptexas.org or send by mail to Community Development Department, City of University Park - 3800 University Blvd.
