Zoning and Development Advisory Committee (Z.A.D.A.C.)

The Zoning and Development Advisory Committee (Z.A.D.A.C.) serves as a citizen advisory committee to the University Park City Council.  Z.A.D.A.C. is forwarded issues from the City Council regarding the Zoning Ordinance. These are usually issues that will require prolonged discussion and many times input from local builders, architects, and developers.

In addition, this group helps review plans and designs involving lighting, screening walls, signage, and other issues that will affect the overall look and feel of University Park. Z.A.D.A.C. also reviews applications for new special sign districts and amendments to existing special sign districts.  Z.A.D.A.C. meets as needed and is an "invitation only" meeting.  Recommendations from Z.A.D.A.C. are forwarded to P&Z and the City Council.


Development Review Committee (D.R.C.)

The Technical Review Committee (D.R.C.) is comprised of representatives of the City's Engineering, Building and Zoning, Fire, Utilities, and Sanitation departments.  The D.R.C. reviews submittals for zoning change requests to ensure compliance with City regulations.  All requests for zoning changes or creation of planned development districts must be reviewed by the D.R.C. before they will be placed on the Planning & Zoning Commission agenda.
