Zoning Code and Subdivision Regulations Update (2017-2018)

The update of the City’s Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance Regulations is now under way. It will include the comprehensive review 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 will also be actively sought. The process includes a substantive public participation program to make sure that the community, property owners, and business owners are aware this update is taking place, can learn about it, and provide input, if  they so desire. 

City Staff from the Community Development Department will serve as the City Advisory Committee. City Staff and the Consultant (Michael Baker International) will be working closely with the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission to review project progress and drafts of each of the Code’s Articles. Stakeholders (i.e. property owners, interested residents, business owners, etc.) will be updated on project progress, draft products and provided opportunities to solicit input. Opportunities will also be provided to the community at large through the conduct of a community meeting and monthly information updates provided on the City’s website and Facebook pages. If you would like to be added to the City’s email list to receive updates on the project as it progresses, please contact Belinda Cota at 520.466.2578 or

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