Please note that as of the October 22, 2015 Town Council Meeting, there will be abbreviated Rezoning staff reports, including a vicinity map, on this site.  The complete, final staff reports will be available when the Town Council agenda or Planning and Zoning Board agenda is published.  Please view the agenda on the Town's Agenda and Minutes Page

A rezoning occurs when a property owner or developer wants to change the use of the property from one use or density to another. Rezonings can be either straight (such as R-40 to R-12), conditional (such as R-40- to R-12-Conditional Use) or to Planned Development District (such as R-40 to Planned Development District, or PDD).

Rezoning requests can be made at the same time as a request for annexation. The Town Council considers rezoning requests after holding a public hearing and referring the request to the Planning and Zoning Board for a recommendation. The Planning Department reviews requests for compliance with land use, utility, transportation, parks and other plans.
