Amendment To City Zoning Process Could Make Growth Easier

The Rapid City Legal and Finance Committee voted unanimously this week to amend the city zoning application and notification process, reports the Rapid City Journal.

Currently, the city must mail out two disclosures, 30 days apart, to every property owner in the rezoned area. The new ordinance will only require that one notification be sent out, 14 or more days in advance of the Planning Commission's hearing on rezoning. This change will apply only when the city is initiating rezoning process.  The amendment was introduced to help simplify the rezoning process, and encourage growth and development in Rapid City.
