After approving a new comprehensive plan last year, city officials are continuing to work on amendments to the corresponding zoning code and will hold a last community forum at the Family Partnership Center on Wednesday, September 27 at 5 p.m.
Zoning regulates how land may be used and establishes standards for development. The city, which has not updated its zoning on a citywide scale in 40 years, intends to streamline the number of districts and modernize the regulations to address development trends. City officials have made some revisions to the initial draft of the zoning code based on public feedback and an earlier open house meeting.
The Common Council has approved a new Comprehensive Plan that charts a vision for future growth and development in the city and provides a blueprint for the zoning code.
Residents and those interested in providing feedback on the latest draft of the zoning code are encouraged to attend the meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday in Room L-05 on the ground floor of the Family Partnership Center, 29 N Hamilton St, Poughkeepsie. They also can read the draft zoning code and map and provide input at the PK4Keeps website.
