Zoning Closer to Reality in Johnson County

Zoning Closer to Reality in Johnson County

The Johnson County Planning and Zoning Commission met with the County Commission at last week's meeting to discuss where they are in compiling information for a rough draft of zoning regulations for the County.

County Commission Chair Smokey Wildeman said the process has been long and contentious at times, but he feels it is time to present the findings to the public for their input.

County Planner Rob Yingling told the Commission he needs mapping done on numerous parcels around the City of Buffalo, but the text portion of the document should be completed by mid-June.

County Information Technology Specialist Rande Money has much of the mapping the Planning Commission needs, he told commissioners, and what he doesn't have, he believes the City of Buffalo's planner might have.

Money will work with the P&Z Commission and both will work toward the July 1st deadline for presenting the document to the public for review.

Once the document is ready, public input will be collected through the County website and through public meetings before the comments are incorporated into the planning document.

The times and places for the public meetings will be advertised.
