The Zoning Ordinance contains the land use regulation for the City including uses allowed within zoning district, dimensional and performance standards for lots and building, and additional standards for unique properties and uses. To add, remove, or modify any of the text of the Zoning Ordinance describing these standards, a zoning ordinance text amendment is required.
A zoning ordinance text amendment requires a public hearing with the Planning Commission before City Council review. A public hearing notice will be published in the Dakota County Tribune.
Changing the zoning district of a property requires a separate rezoning.
The City Code addresses Zoning Ordinance Text Amendments within Section 11-10-11.
