21-0273 Review and Recommendation of New Columbia Development Code
Request from Development Services for review and recommendation of a new Columbia Development Code. Throughout 2020 and 2021 Development Services staff and consultant Town Planning and Urban Design Collaborative (TPUDC) worked on a draft of a new Zoning Ordinance to better implement the City of Columbia Comprehensive Plan, Connect Columbia. Staff and TPUDC engaged citizens and stakeholders through "Planapalooza" and other outreach. The Planning Commission heard additional stakeholder concerns at the December 8, 2021 meeting. The Commission deferred consideration of the draft to the current agenda so that staff could respond to these concerns and direct the consultant to update the draft. Staff requests that the Commission review the draft Ordinance and recommend adoption to the City Council.
