Yes. Regularly over a period of time, the community needs, desires, and objectives shift, as does its economic, environmental, and vested interests. The Zoning Code allows for modifications to the Zoning Map and Zoning Regulations.
A Zoning Map Amendment (also known as a Rezoning) is the process to change the zone on a lot, and a Zoning Text Amendment is to amend the regulations. A Zoning Map Amendment or the Zoning Text Amendment may be initiate by a lot owner or their agent, and by the City Council. When a Zoning Map Amendment or the Zoning Text Amendment is proposed, the applicant required to demonstrate, and the City Council is required find, that the amendment is in conformance with the Regional Plan.
The Zoning Regulations prescribe the process for a Zoning Map Amendment and Zoning Text Amendment.
