Due to the difficult economic situation faced by developers and homeowners, the Bureaus of Development Services and Planning and Sustainability are proposing a Zoning Code amendment that would extend for a limited period the expiration dates of land use reviews and related land use actions.
Currently, an approved land-use review expires if a building permit is not issued within three years of the land use decision, and approved preliminary plans for land divisions expire if a final plat application has not been submitted within three years of the decision on the preliminary plan. Pre-application conferences expire within a year of the date the conference was held. The proposed Code amendment would extend for a limited period of time these expiration dates.
On April 14, 2009, the Planning Commission voted to send a favorable recommendation on the amendment to the City Council. The City Council will consider the amendment at a hearing on Wednesday, May 6, 2009, at 10:00 am.
