Code Amendment - Sign and Letter Notice for Public Hearings

Case: ZOA-20-06
Public hearings that are quasi-judicial (aka development-related) require public notice by sign and letter as well as in the newspaper and on the City’s website. At City Council’s request, staff has reviewed the requirements associated with sign and letter notice, and this code amendment changes current practice in two ways: 1) it increases the number of posted signs based on frontage length and parcel configuration, and 2) it increases the letter notice radius from 300 feet to 6oo feet.

This meeting will be conducted as a virtual meeting, meaning no participant will be at City Hall.  Provide public comment here on Wheat Ridge Speaks until noon on September 16 (the day before the meeting) by selecting the agenda item on which you want to comment.  Refer to the meeting agenda and "how to" document to learn more about participating in the live meeting or to view the meeting live or later.

As a citizen and involved with this community I would like to see that all notices go out to the 1000 foot range. The city can capture more citizens at that distance and will not get as many complaints of "I never got a notice" "I live close enough to be affected by this issue and would like to know" 300 feet is the length of a football field. Is that enough coverage for important development issues in Wheat Ridge? This length and coverage is hard to imagine in one's mind and more is better--to know that notice coverage is at its best. So just make 1000 feet the standard for all notices and feel good about the change you are considering and the effort of reaching as many as possible. Thank you for your time and consideration.
