About the EPC

The Environmental Planning Commission (EPC), which is supported by the Current Planning Section of the Urban Design and Development Division, reviews and decides requests for zone map amendments to the City’s Official Zoning Map. It also reviews and decides Master Development Plans associated with the Non-residential Business Park (NR-BP) zone district and site plans associated with the following zone districts:

  • Planned Development (PD)
  • Planned Community (PC)
  • Mixed-use Form-based (MX-FB)
  • Non-residential Parks & Open Space (NR-PO)
  • Non-residential Sensitive Use (NR-SU)

The EPC, in its advisory role to the City Council, reviews and provides recommendations on annexation requests, certain zone map amendment requests, proposed text amendments to the Integrated Development Ordinance, and adoption and amendments to the Rank 1 Comprehensive Plan and Rank 2 Facility Plans.
