Land Use Chart Updates

On November 22, 2021, The Town authorized a task order for Freese and Nichols, Inc, to review ordinance amendments and their alignment with best practices as it relates to the Town's land use chart. 


Town Staff worked with Freese and Nichols, Inc. to finalize the deliverables for Council consideration. The item was scheduled on June 1, 2022 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting for their consideration. Freese and Nichols provided a presentation on all the updates made to the land use chart and the members of the Planning and Zoning Commission suggested changes to several items on the proposed use chart. P&Z made a motion to keep the public hearing open for this item until July 6, 2022. 


During the July 6, 2022 P&Z meeting, FNI discussed how the P&Z recommended changes were addressed. There was one additional item that was discussed during the meeting and P&Z moved to approve the item. The Town Council then requested this item to be discussed at a work session before it was placed on a Council agenda for an action. The work session was held on July 27, 2022, where multiple P&Z members were also present. Final suggested changes from the July 27, 2022 workshop were incorporated into a presentation to Town Council during their meeting on August 15, 2022. 

During this meeting Town Council approved the amendments to Article I, General, Part 3 Definitions and Article III, Zoning of the Town of Argyle Town Development Standards regarding various amendments to zoning districts, land use chars, definitions, and other land use related provisions in the Town Development Standards. ( TDS- 21- 007). The motion passed 5-0.
