Input sought on proposed zoning regs

A nearly two-year process to update zoning regulations throughout Hamilton County is nearing the final stages of review with input being sought now on proposed regulations.
Scott Stuhr, the county’s planning and zoning administrator, announced this week that Hamilton County, as well as all villages located in the county, are in the process of finalizing a draft comprehensive plan, which includes subdivision and zoning regulations. The project basically involves all property in the county, outside the city limits of Aurora.
“Every community in the county is in a different place in the process as to how they move forward,” Stuhr reported. “We have draft copies available for inspection online and there are hard copies available at the courthouse for people to review.”
