Oakland Park to discuss land use and possible changes

The City of Oakland Park presents a neighborhood compatibility and incompatible land use ordinances community meeting on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, 7 p.m. at Jaco Pastorius Park Community Center, 4000 North Dixie Highway, Oakland Park. The meeting is open to all residents, property and business owners, and its purpose is to get input and discuss the proposed ordinances and concepts to improve compatibility between neighborhoods and nonresidential districts and reduce the negative effects from incompatible land uses. That is land uses, although generally permitted by the use regulation’s of the zoning districts in which these establishments are located, which cause substantial interference with the use and enjoyment of adjacent residential properties. These ordinances will also address the recommendations of the Michele Mellgren & Associates Community Compatibility 2007 study, resident and stakeholder expectations, and Broward County and City staff’s best practices recommendations for regulating incompatible land uses and improving neighborhood compatibility. For more information contact: Justin Proffitt, AICP, Planner at from the planning & zoning division

* One or more City Commissioners and/or City Board Members may be in attendance at this meeting.
