It's been a while since our last Central Houghton Neighborhood Association (CHNA) meeting. I wanted to make all of you aware of a couple of upcoming events.
1. August 25 Public Hearing - Houghton Community Council (HCC) Sunsetting
The city's Planning Commission will be holding a public hearing starting at 7:00 PM on Thursday August 25 to receive input on code changes proposed by the City as a result of the state legislation sunsetting the Houghton Community Council, effective July 8, 2022. These include revising the city's procedures to reflect the elimination of the HCC. The other changes are more substantial because they will change the zoning and land use codes within the HCC boundaries to align with the rest of the City. A key part of those changes will be when they actually take effect. People that are in the midst of a development permit could be adversely affected. Use the following link for more information on the hearing and how to participate in the virtual (Zoom) meeting.
