Minor Plan Amendment - Chapter 3 Revision

City planning staff identified the need for clarifications and revisions to the Plan's Chapter 3 - How This Plan Works. Specifically, revisions were required for a table used to determine if an application requires a major or minor plan amendment. A lack of clarity at the beginning of the application process can lead to wasted resources and confusion for staff and the applicant, so a clear delineation of this table is critical for City staff, customers and the public. 

This proposed minor amendment to the Flagstaff Regional Plan was the second proposed by the Planning staff, since ratification of the Plan in May 2014.

Public Hearing Draft

The public review period ended April 15, 2016, and the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended adoption of these plan amendments to the City Council.

Map 25 Major Regional Plan Amendment

The Map 25 Major Regional Plan Amendment was approved by ordinance at the December 1, 2015 City Council Meeting (watch the meeting).

The purpose of the major amendment is to bring Map 25: Road Network Illustration (Map 25) in the Flagstaff Regional Plan 2030 (FRP30) into compliance with Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) 9-461.05 and to resolve inconsistencies between the Land Use and Transportation Chapters and other part of the City Code related to Map 25. These changes were processed as a major plan amendment because they are related to the major amendment category of "Addition of a Corridor or Great Street" on page III-9.

Provided by Amendment

This amendment provides:

  • A Road Network Illustration that conforms to the legal requirements of Arizona Revised Statutes;
  • Improved consistency on language related to Map 25 within FRP30 and with other City Code and policies;
  • Improved ability to provide consistent direction to City projects and development applications;
  • Expansion of the Corridor Place Type in two areas within the City;
  • Improved ability to communicate with the public about land use and transportation issues pertaining to corridors; and
  • Improved ability to determine the fair and roughly proportional share of infrastructure costs.
