City Initiated Map Amendment

Zoning Overlays: Agriculture, Floodplain, River Road – Design Review Overlay

In consistency with the above-noted code amendments, the City is proposing amendment to the zoning map. This proposal includes modification of the Agriculture Overlay and removal of the Floodplain Overlay. Additionally, the City will correct a mapping error related to the River Road – Design Review Overlay. This overlay was recently revised and renamed the Mixed Use – Design Review Overlay, maintaining the applicable code section PMC 20.52. However, the designation on the map was not properly identified to reflect that revision. That designation will be corrected on the map at this time.
