The City of Kerrville’s Code Review Committee will host an Open House on Thursday, May 16 from 5-7 p.m. at the Dietert Center to discuss the committee’s ongoing Zoning Code rewrite and its support of the Kerrville 2050 Comprehensive Plan. The committee will also be requesting input on potential changes to the city’s current sign ordinance.
The city’s Zoning Code has not had a major update since 2011 with regard to districts and development requirements. The goals of the CRC Zoning Code rewrite are to simplify the city’s zoning code and enable it to be more consistently applied while also offering more flexibility given changes in the development, including:
SIMPLICITY and FLEXIBILITY:
• Reduce the overall number of Zoning Districts to better conform to standard planning and zoning nomenclature.
• Expand the land use table to better define the uses and remove ambiguity.
• Lessen the number of Conditional Use Permits (CUPs) required.
• Reduce the number of non-conforming properties.
• Allow for more flexibility in housing types for various income levels.
• Set up a clear regulatory landscape for reinvestment in the community and catalyst areas as described in the Kerrville 2050 Comprehensive Plan.
Drop by Thursday between 5-7 p.m. to review the committee’s progress and add your thoughts to the code rewrite process. There will be a brief presentation, but this is a come-and-go event. Information is also available online at https://kerrvilletx.gov/…/Kerrville-2050-Code-Review-Commit…
