Meetings, Agendas & Public Hearings

Below are links to proposed exterior design standards. These design standards would clarify the "neighborhood compatibility" requirement that is currently in the Zoning Ordinance. The standards would apply in the same instances as is currently the case, so this is not a new regulation, but rather a clarification of an existing one.

Design Standards PC Introduction

Draft Exterior Design Standards, Oct. 2015

The following Zoning Ordinance amendments have been recommended for approval by the Planning Commission. The City Commission will hold a public hearing on these on Tuesday, February 9 at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Based on the discussion at the meeting, the Police will make enforcement of leash laws a higher priority and the City Commission will begin to develop an ordinance that would regulate dangerous and potentially dangerous animals in the City.

The City is not considering a breed-specific ban or bans. Any comments on this matter should be directed to the City Manager at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
