Ordinance Available for Public Comment Before and During May 20th Council Meeting.
Lawrenceville’s Mayor and Council tabled the final draft of the City’s new Zoning Ordinance at the April 27 live remote City Council meeting. The ordinance was tabled due to the removal of the public hearing portion of the meeting in accordance with Governor Brian Kemp’s shelter-in-place guidelines. The draft ordinance is available for public comment before and during the May 20th City Council meeting. The purpose and intent of the rewrite has been to create an ordinance containing user-friendly regulations that preserve, protect and promote the public health, safety and general welfare of the residents and businesses in the City of Lawrenceville.
“The City’s Zoning Ordinance hasn’t had a complete rewrite in 15 years,” said Chuck Warbington, City Manager. “The new ordinance reflects recent policy direction found in our 2040 Comprehensive Plan, meets industry standards and best practices for modern planning and zoning, and is accessible and enforceable. It’s exactly what the City needs for a sustainable future.”
The City of Lawrenceville’s zoning ordinance was first published in 1971, and has been amended several times, and rewritten in 1978, 2000 and 2005. Owners of property within the City limits are encouraged to view the draft version of the new Zoning Ordinance and offer feedback via email to planning or in person at the May 20th City Council Meeting.
