2015 Highland Heights Zoning Ordinance and Map Review, January 2015
The Highland Heights City Council, in August of 2013 requested that the Planning and Zoning Commission conduct a formal review of the city’s zoning regulations, in compliance with the Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS). The City had just adopted the 2012 Highland Heights Comprehensive Plan, setting the stage for the formal review of the current zoning regulations. The Planning and Zoning Commission conducted a public workshop in November of 2013, and then set about gathering public comments and reviewing the text and map of the regulations. In January of 2015, the Planning and Zoning Commission staff has prepared some preliminary draft changes that are posted here for citizens, residents, land owners, business owners, and officials to have a preliminary view of the work-in- progress. The Planning and Zoning Commission encourages all interested parties to review, ask questions, and provide comment. The City Planner, Dave Geohegan will be available at the Highland Heights city building to discuss the proposed revisions at the following times:
- Thursday, January 22nd 12pm-1pm;
- Friday January 23rd 4pm-5pm;
- Monday January 26th 12pm-1pm, and 6pm-7pm;
- January 27th 6pm-7pm
These are times designed to encourage people to come out and get involved, however, if another date and time is desired, people can contact Dave and arrange a meeting. He can be reached at 859-441- 8575 or DaveGeohegan@hhky.com . The Planning and Zoning Commission will subsequently review all comments received on the regulations and map, make any needed changes, produce a formal draft, and continue the public review including a formal public hearing before adoption of the official Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map. This is anticipated to occur in late winter of 2015.
