Moratorium Adopted

At their September 8th meeting, Mayor and City Council adopted a six month, citywide moratorium on the acceptance of new applications for achieving residential densities greater than those afforded by the present base zoning. This includes applications for rezoning that seek increased residential densities, applications for Valley Overlay concept plan approval that seek increased residential densities, and similar. The moratorium does not apply to building permits for work such as new construction, additions and renovations on previously platted lots or projects that are currently within the review and approval process. This moratorium is set to expire on March 9, 2023 but may be withdrawn by Mayor and Council prior to this date.

Please email with any questions.
