Rezoning Process:

A rezoning may be requested if an owner desires to use property for a use that is not currently allowed. All rezoning must be in conformity with the Lee Plan. An applicant is required to submit a completed appli​cation with the applicable supplemental requirements and a fee pursuant to the fee schedule.
 
The general process for rezoning is:
  • Application submitted to Zoning Division​
  • Staff review and written recommendation
  • Hearing Examiner public hearing​
  • Recommendation forwarded to Board of County Commissioners
  • Decision at public hearing by Board of County Commissioners​
Following a staff review of the application, which results in a written report, all rezoning are then subject to a public hearing before the Hearing Examiner. Applicants must give a brief presentation and respond to questions or cross-examination. Public participation via verbal or written comment is accepted. Procedures for the conduct of the public hearings before the Hearing Examiner are established in Administrative Code A​C-2-6.
