The City Planning Commission's Rules, Policies, Procedures and Neighborhood Relations Committee held a Special Public Hearing on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 in the City Council Chambers to consider modifications to the NPP to further enhance early notification and the dissemination of information related to development projects.
The City Charter calls for “a system of organized and effective neighborhood participation in land use decisions and other issues that affect quality of life.” The purpose of the Neighborhood Participation Program for Land Use actions is to provide timely notification of any proposed land use action affecting a neighborhood and to provide the opportunity for meaningful neighborhood review of and comment on such proposals.
In July 2012, the City Planning Commission (CPC) adopted the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for Land Use Actions, a report recommending improvements to the CPC’s public notification and engagement processes. This report has been approved by the City Council and key portions have been implemented through changes to the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.
On April 12, 2016, the City Planning Commission adopted the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) 2016 Study. The Study was subsequently forwarded to the City Council for their consideration. The consideration document can be viewed here:
