A zoning text amendment is a change to the text of the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO). Some zoning text amendments are requested to add a land use to the list of permitted, conditional or accessory uses in a particular zoning district. Other text amendments may propose the creation of an entirely new zoning district or a modification to a development standard that applies to properties all across the city.

Requests for zoning text changes may also be initiated by any property owner in the city or by the City Council. The City Planning Commission (CPC) holds a public hearing on all text change requests and makes a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council then makes a final decision on each text amendment request, following a public hearing.
