|PLAN MOVES ONE STEP CLOSER|
COMP PLAN PROGRESSING 7-22-10 LMS
The second reading of Ordinance 10-762 was passed by the Salmon City Council July 21st.
The ordinance is the amended City Comprehensive Plan. After a July 7th public hearing on the plan and passage of its first reading, some of the verbiage within the ordinance text was changed to reflect public comments received during the hearing. The second reading approved those changes.
Another part of the Comprehensive Plan is a land use map, developed in 1992, which indicates how land within city boundaries might be designated and zoned sometime in the future. The map is not based on present zoning and does not change present zoning. During the public hearing some residents raised issues with the map’s proposed future designations.
Before the second reading of the ordinance came to a vote, City Planning and Zoning Administrator Dan Maiyo recommended to the City Council that the map of future land use designations remain as is and let property owners who want changes to specific zoning designations come forward and go through the steps required to make those changes. He said each individual application will be sent through the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing process. He said, “That way all affected property owners will have their say-so.”
City Attorney John McKinney supported Maiyo’s recommendation.
The third and final reading of the amended City Comprehensive Plan will take place at the next City Council meeting.
