Framework for consideration of amendments to the Zoning Ordinances

The Town’s land use attorney, Mark Sadd, proposes that we consider amendments to the zoning ordinances in stages.  Accordingly, the staff to the Council has developed the framework listed below.  Our priority is enactment of those amendments which will bring the town into compliance with West Virginia state code.  To read more, click here.


UPDATE!  Proposed amendments to zoning ordinances are before Council for consideration

The Council is preparing to move forward with most of the proposed amendments as revised by Council and by Planning. The proposed changes to the zoning ordinance – Part 13 of our Town ordinances – trigger changes elsewhere in our ordinances, particularly in Part 17 - Building and Housing Code. All proposed changes have been significantly revised in response to the workshops, to public comments received, and earlier legal reviews. The current versions are now under further legal review.  Read more here.
