Zoning Code and Subdivision Regulations Update (2017-2018)

A preliminary draft of all of the components of the updated Eloy Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance Regulations have now been prepared and reviewed by the City’s Planning & Zoning Commission. This update has included the comprehensive review of all of the components of Chapters 21 and 15 of the City Code. In conjunction with the technical analysis and the editing of and augmenting of the text, tables and illustrations, community input has also been actively sought through the email blast of each module and notification of upcoming community meetings.

City Staff from the Community Development Department have served as the City Advisory Committee. City Staff and the Consultant (Michael Baker International) have worked closely with the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission (as the Technical Committee) to review project progress and drafts of each of the Code’s Articles as they have been prepared in draft form. Stakeholders (i.e. property owners, interested residents, business owners, etc.) have been updated (via email) on project progress, draft products and provided opportunities to solicit input. Opportunities have also been provided to the community at large through the recent conduct of two community meetings and periodic updates provided on the City’s website and Facebook pages. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Jon Vlaming or Belinda Cota at 520.466.2578.

The update of the Ordinance and Regulations pertain to the entire 113 square mile area within the jurisdiction of the City of Eloy.
