Proposed changes to Zoning and Subdivision regulations

In October 2009 the Planning Commission completed its work on new Zoning and Subdivision regulations that it has recommended to the City Council for adoption. The City Council will conduct a work session with the Planning Commission at the upcoming City Council meeting on February 15, 2010 at 7:30PM. The meeting is held at the American Legion Hall. Members of the public are encouraged to attend.

More information about these proposed changes, including a link to the document containing the regulations can be found at the Governing Body's online web log on the City website. The web log may be accessed at the following location:

i would like to commend the planning commission on all the hard work on this project. I know it was difficult at times and the planning group is always under appreciated. Like to make a few comments.

  1. Glad that rollback curbs are being allowed because they do last a lot longer than the standing curbs due to impacts from snow plows cars etc.

  2. Excellent stance on not allowing developments that are not connected to the sewer system to occur. The cost of not putting in the sewer now by the developer always ends up being a cost to the city as a whole later down the road.

  3. Combining planning and zoning appeals into one board will streamline things a lot.

Well done ladies and Gentlemen.

The following link is to notes from a meeting with business leaders affiliated with the Baldwin City Economic Development Corporation regarding the proposed changes to the Zoning and Subdivision Codes.

".............real business of government.............." Is that what this is?

I'd say that this definitely falls under the real business of government. What exactly do you think the real business of local government is?

The real business of local government is not to come on a Web site and draw attention to it with subidivision regulations. What is a subidivision, Robin?

Jeff,

I noticed the typo as soon as I created the entry last week. I tried several times to edit the blog entry (the options are available under "Edit this Entry"), but unfortunately when one attempts to post the revised entry it does not actually make the correction. Perhaps the fine folks affiliated with your parent company could help us out with that feature.

BTW, I did this specifically to illustrate why an Editor is the most important job in the universe. If I had an Editor on my posts then I would not have been allowed to make these kinds of mistakes.

Thanks,

Robin

The business of government. Jesus Christ, I think I just barfed in my mouth thinking of what all that entails.

But if you really want to know, the "real business of local government" is to appoint your buddies to the city council -- then watch them froth at the mouth and shoot blanks over local codes and regulations policy.

That's funny, grey. Thanks for the laugh.

Nice try, Robin. If in fact you noticed the typo and couldn't fix it in the edit mode -- which I have not experienced -- you shouldn't have hit the submit button. Pretty simple.

Oh, good Lord, Jeff.

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones..

The pot calling the kettle black.

There but for the grace of God go I.

Pick your favorite idiom. The Signal and its online companion are so riddled with errors in each and every edition that it boggles the mind that you would come on here and point fingers at an obvious typo. And in such a snide and arrogant manner, no less.

How about you start editing your paper and leave the editing of Speakout to us?

All kidding aside, the typo has been fixed and the software glitch involving editing posts once they've gone live is being worked on.

What's the world coming to when Bloggerboo says exactly what I was thinking?

Are cracks appearing in the seamless mutually-supportive bastions of B.C.?
