Section 20-42 Same--Zoning ordinance and subdivision plats.
Prior to the adoption of 16773 on 02/05/2001, Section 20-42 read as follows.
(a) The commission shall exercise the authority vested in
it by the state zoning enabling acts. It
shall prepare and recommend to the council a comprehensive zoning ordinance, or propose
amendments or revisions thereof, with such provisions as the commission shall deem necessary
or desirable for the promotion of the health, safety, morals and general welfare of the inhabitants
of the city. Such provisions may include regulations as to the location, width, height, and bulk of
buildings; the size of yards, courts, and other open spaces surrounding buildings; and the use of
buildings and land. The commission shall hear applications for amendments, modifications or
revisions of the zoning ordinance and shall forward such applications to the council with its
recommendations thereon. The recommendations of the commission shall not be binding upon
the council, which may approve or disapprove the commission's findings; however, no plan, no
zoning ordinance, nor any modification, amendment or revision thereof, shall be finally
considered by the council unless the same shall have been first submitted to the commission for
its examination and recommendation.
(b) All plats of proposed subdivisions presented to the council
for approval shall be submitted
to the commission, which shall make recommendations to the council with respect thereto.
