How can I be involved?

Green Mountain Falls is committed to community engagement throughout this entire process. This effort will include a newsletter, a survey, community input meetings, and Planning Commission meetings and there will be multiple opportunities to learn, review and provide comment on the new zoning code.

Here is what has happened so far and what is coming next:

  • April 1 Newsletter with survey
  • April 27 Community input meeting
  • May 25 Annotated outline presentation
  • August 10 Presentation of first installment of rewrite (See chart at top of page)

 

Why now?

The existing zoning code is outdated, and needs to be updated to keep up with the significant changes that have occurred since it was written. We want to make sure we have the planning tools to preserve what makes Green Mountain Falls exceptional and to continue to improve as our community grows. A new zoning code is also necessary to successfully implement the goals of the 2019 Comprehensive Plan.

 

What are the current zoning concerns?
