The applicant filed a request for Zoning Text and Map amendment which was processed in accordance with our Municipal Code, and Municipalities Planning Code. The application went before the Planning Commission on June 14, 2023 & July 12, 2023. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the Text & Map Amendment at their July 12, 2023 meeting. A Public hearing was subsequently scheduled before the Board of Commissioners on August 22, 2023. At this hearing, the Commissioners voted to approve the Zoning Text Amendment. The minutes to this hearing can be found here: https://www.uppergwynedd.org/sites/g/files/vyhlif1351/f/minutes/august_2....
The next step in the process will be initiated when the developer files a Land Development and a required Conditional Use application. This application will also be processed in accordance with our Municipal Code, and Municipalities Planning Code.
