Open Forum: Learn about Brainerd zoning revisions

For over a year, the Brainerd Planning Commission has worked on revisions to the zoning ordinance. They have now sent it to the Brainerd council for action, adoption, rejection or changes. The council has it on the Aug. 15 agenda for one more opportunity to hear from the people.

If you have questions, comments or suggestions, we want to hear from you.

There are some changes in the proposed ordinance — some are tougher as they relate to single family zoning. Some propose a change from residential to business and commercial. There is a new zoning category — B6 — for the Washington Street area.

What do you think?

Do the changes reflect your vision for Brainerd?

No action will be taken at the Aug. 15 meeting. It is a time to hear from you.

At the council meetings of Sept. 6 and Sept. 19, the council will consider the ordinance for adoption. Changes that may result from public comments can be included.

The council as well as the Planning Commission want the people to be heard and sincerely hope your consideration of Brainerd’s zoning future will be addressed.

Aug. 15, 7:30 p.m., Council Chambers, City Hall. A time to be heard.
