Processes and Procedures Ordinance
Come hear about the Processes and Procedures Ordinance, intended to improve accessibility to the Zoning Code by making it easier to use and understand. The proposed ordinance would overhaul the way the Department of City Planning reviews and acts upon applications and requests, and would cut the number of review procedures in half, while still maintaining long-standing opportunities for participation.
Special Guest: Tom Rothmann and Bonnie Kim, Department of City Planning
