    ZONING CODE UPDATE OPEN HOUSE
     
     
     
    The City of Fort Atkinson will be hosting its second meeting to review and provide feedback on the Draft Zoning Ordinance on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2020 AT 6:00 P.M. in the City Council Chambers at the Municipal Building (101 N. Main Street). This meeting will focus on performance measures (parking, exterior building design, landscaping, signage, etc.) and key policy decisions.
     
    The series of public meetings are part of a multi-year effort to update the City’s Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance regulates land use types and building configurations for all properties in the City. The Zoning Ordinance rewrite project involves updating the Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map to reflect current community desires and market realities. Additionally, the Zoning Ordinance rewrite project establishes clear development procedures, creates an environment in which reinvestment is encouraged, and matches the Draft Zoning Map to the City’s desired future land use pattern.
     
    Planning consultants from Vandewalle & Associates have been working with the City and stakeholder groups on the project for the past 12 months and will facilitate each meeting. No formal action will be taken by the City at these events. The public hearing on the Draft Zoning Ordinance will be held later in year. Additional information about the Zoning Ordinance rewrite project is available by contacting Brian Juarez, Building Inspector/Zoning Administrator, at (920) 563-7760 or bjuarez@fortatkinsonwi.net
