North Augusta citizens will have a chance to weigh in on a major revision of the city’s planning and development code.
A public hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 11, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers in the Municipal Building.
Tommy Paradise, director of the Planning and Development department, said this revision has been a long time in the making. The work began in 2000.
“We had a task force that helped develop this draft and we went chapter by chapter, page by page from the front to the back,” he said. “Then those changes were shipped back to the consultant, then, went to the Planning Commission. The planning commission had a public hearing at several work sessions, where they let some of the public speak. But I think we’re getting down to the deadline now.”
