Planning & Land Use
The Planning & Land Use Committee works to minimize the impact of development on the community. The Committee receives notices of development from the city and from residents who have been notified of a development in their neighborhood. The permits and plans are analyzed and when needed, the SCRA can help facilitate a meeting between neighbors and developer to help find a solution that works for all involved. If necessary, the SCRA can attend planning hearings to speak in favor or against projects and obtain some modification in density, height, parking, or landscaping. In the past, the SCRA has joined the legal process by appealing decisions at the South Valley Area Planning Commission and the Downtown level.
