The Commerce City Council will hold another “informational meeting” before it votes on whether to adopt the East Jackson Overlay District.
The proposal, a joint venture of the Jackson County and Commerce planning departments, adds new restrictions to new development along the main corridors entering Commerce.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 31, in the Commerce Room of the Commerce Civic Center.
Mayor Clark Hill indicated that he wanted staff to demonstrate to citizens that the overlay will not add burdensome development costs.
“The expensive part of developing has nothing to do with the city of Commerce,” he said. You have DOT requirements, EPD requirements on storm water. Every drop of water that falls on your property, you have to account for.”
