Revamping Zoning Rules

Posted: Updated:

A proposed revamping of the city of Minot's zoning rules is getting close scrutiny this week.

The 182-page plan contains some major changes to the regulations governing everything from where manufactured homes can be legally installed to how far back from the street homes and businesses must be built.

But a representative of the Minot Association of Builders says the proposed rules were developed with little or no input from people in the building and real estate industry.

That's why this special committee was formed - to bring together people from various aspects of the building and development industry and city government to go over every line of the proposal and work out compromises to give the city a new set of zoning rules.

(Dave Pankow, Committee Chairman) "We needed to bring in everyone to get comments and get consensus on the items we're dealing with - zoning for R1, C2, C4, all of those different zoning ordinances - they're about 30 years old so to move forward with our city moving forward we felt it was reasonable to take a look at them and clean some things up."

(Joel Feist, Minot Association of Builders) "We're happy the planning commission has asked us to get involved at this time. I think there's some valuable input from builders and developers who do the work to get this community built."

The final draft of the zoning plan will be sent to the city planning committee, and then on to the full city council for a vote.
