Why must applicants hold their own neighborhood meeting?
Neighborhood meetings are required for two reasons. First, they provide early public notice to surrounding property owners of a potential zoning application being made to the city. More importantly, they provide an early opportunity for owners and residents in the area, or any interested resident, to learn about the proposal from the applicant, to ask questions, and to identify and discuss issues, so that early dialogue is initiated between the applicant and the neighborhood in an effort to better address and mitigate issues or concerns, before the application is submitted to the city.
