Kingman Planning Commission to hold public hearing on zoning code update
KINGMAN – The City of Kingman Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing and could make a recommendation to city council regarding the public review draft of the Kingman Zoning Code update at its 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12 meeting.
The city’s zoning ordinance was originally adopted in 1971 and then readopted in 2001, and was last updated in 2019. However, the ordinance has been amended more than 290 times, and the city has processed more than 500 zone changes.
The city has hired Lisa Wise Consulting to work on the zoning ordinance update. On Tuesday, commissioners will hold a public hearing and may make a recommendation to Kingman City Council on how to proceed.
Commissioners will also review a minor general plan amendment request and a subsequent rezoning case from property owners at 135 E. Oak St. The amendment seeks to change the land-use designation from high density residential to neighborhood commercial for the 9,375-square-foot property. The rezone request, if approved, would rezone the property from residential multiple-family, low density to commercial, neighborhood convenience.
