General Plan Land Use Amendment Requires City Council Approval

A General Plan Land Use Designation Amendment is required to change the Connolly Center and Chapel Business Center properties from Commercial/Mixed-Use to Medium-Density Residential (14.6 to 29.9 units per net acre.)

In 2014, the previous City Council basically said they would consider approving the amendment when it comes up for a formal vote. They directed the Planning Department to proceed with the residential development application for these two lots.

The development has now been submitted as a formal application which will have to go through the same approval process as any other development. The Planning Commission will have to review the proposal. The current City Council, which has two new members, will have to reconsider the request for a General Plan Land Use Amendment.

The public is encouraged to view the plans and make comments by contacting the City Planner, Bill Roth at
