Planning System - Notice Posting


The City is piloting our new, redesigned notice postings (signs) to better inform citizens about redesignation proposals in their communities. The new sign template is larger, easier to understand, and more visually appealing. It includes a variety of new features all with the goal of increasing public participation in the development process through the recently launched Planning & Development Map. These include:

  • Plain language descriptions
  • Clear call to actions
  • Enhanced design
  • Enhanced, visually appealing design
  • Better placement

The newly redesigned sign template is larger, more visually appealing, with easily understandable project descriptions. It is also tied to another innovative Planning System project: Planning & Development Map. The signs direct citizens to the map so that you can view more details on the project as well have your say about developments happening in your community. These complimentary tools are both intended to increase public participation in the application process. Check out the Development Map page here.
