Critical Area Program Update

The Critical Area Program Update consists of two parts--a zoning text update and a zoning map update.  Ordinance O-27-19 updates the City's zoning language to match current state requirements.   Each change is explained in the spreadsheet.   The draft proposed Critical Area Maps are shown below.  The current critical area line is shown with a dashed line, the proposed is shown in yellow, green, and red.  Use the index to find a specific map below.  As of August 5, 2020, the Critical Area Commission approved the City's maps and text (with amendments).  The text amendments will return to City Council for approval.
