GALVESTON — With the news Monday that the planning commission would continue its review of the new Land Development Regulations into April, the city has released an updated schedule of what will be reviewed at each of the next five workshop meetings.
As it has since the review meetings began in January, the planning commission will accept only written comments about the Land Development Regulations. There is also a public comment period during each of the commission’s regular meetings, and there will be at least two public meetings about the plan following the commission’s review.
The commission has already completed first reviews of the plan’s new rules on purposes and districts, use tables, parking, landscaping, the Gateway Corridor district, historic preservation and nonconformities.
Originally, the review was to be completed by the end of February, but the commission has committed to a line-by-line review of the new regulations, which has extended the process.
The new schedule follows. All meetings are held in Room 204 at Galveston City Hall.
