Proposed ordinance 2016-04 proposes changes to several ordinances containing definitions, administrative procedure and regulatory standards relating to fences, travel trailers, solar equipment, historic squares, stormwater and quasi-judicial process. The proposed changes, which are available for review here, are the culmination of more than two years of ongoing planning workshops and public meetings with the City's Planning and Zoning Board and Joint Workshops with the City Commission.
