STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: City planning commission reviewed these requests at their regular July 11, 2000, meeting and recommended these parcels for reclassification. Those parcels located in areas where planning groups are active were reviewed for consistency with plans for those neighborhoods. With pending development of the comprehensive plan, the planning commission has taken a more conservative approach to reviewing requests for reclassification. Only requests where there is a hardship or the development of the parcel will be a nonissue are given serious consideration.
