Crosslake Commercial land use opinions heard
Kicking off the process of reviewing and updating commercial land use ordinances in Crosslake, consultant John Sumption and the planning and zoning department held a public hearing to discuss what changes the community would like to see to the ordinances.
Between 10-15 people attended the meeting, mostly business owners but also residents and council members. Sumption, who was hired by the council, said he plans to review parts of Chapter 26 of the city’s ordinance. Chris Pence, Planning and Zoning Superivisor with the county, said a staff-level review will be performed on other areas of the city’s code relating to commercial land use.
Throughout the review process, the areas of code that will be examined, along with drafts of the potential new ordinance (once written) will be on the city’s website, www.cityofcrosslake.org.
The goal of the review is to make the ordinances readable and understandable.
