Step 3: LD&T Meeting

The Land Development and Transportation Committee (LD&T Committee) holds regular meetings to review rezoning applications, resolve technical issues, schedule public hearing dates, and make recommendations to the Planning Commission. These meetings are open to the public.

1.  The LD&T Committee reviews your plan at a public meeting, prior to the Planning Commission Public Hearing. Once a date is set for the LD&T meeting, you are required to send public notification to adjoining property owners and neighborhood group representatives by mail. Neighbors must be sent notification 14 days prior to the meeting. Click here for additional information on public notices. Once you have mailed the public notices, you will need to fill out and submit an affidavit of notification.


2.  The Case Manager prepares a staff report 6 days prior to the meeting. The staff report and agenda are provided in advance to LD&T committee members for their review, and are usually posted the Friday before the following week's meeting here.


3.  The LD&T meeting is held. LD&T meetings are typically held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in the Old Jail Building located at 514 W. Liberty Street. Often, there are multiple cases on the agenda to be reviewed. You won't need to make a formal presentation, however, you are free to bring pictures or other supporting materials to help make your case.


4.  After the case is reviewed at the meeting, the LD&T Committee will schedule the public hearing, ask you to revise and resubmit the plan, require further studies, or recommend restrictions. If you are asked to resubmit the plan, your plan will only be reviewed by those agencies that have expressed concerned with the process and you will need to present your revised plan at another LD&T meeting in order to be scheduled for Planning Commission.
