Chapter 32 Text:

Why Update the Zoning Code?  
In 2015, the City updated its 15-year old comprehensive plan, using extensive community feedback. It's important that the City’s zoning code aligns and supports the direction of this new comprehensive plan.  The new plan will also be modernized, simplified, and flexible: 

  • MODERNIZE: The new zoning code will enhance the experience of users by incorporating a user's guide and more graphics and user-friendly tables.
  • SIMPLIFY: The City is exploring how the zoning code could improve the review and approval process for development proposals. The goal is to simplify the process for quality development.
  • FLEXIBILITY: The new code will address the diversity of Iowa’s second largest city by embracing its uniqueness and providing options that accommodate the city’s urban, suburban, and commercial areas.
