WHAT APPLICANTS SHOULD DO
If You Are a Zoning Applicant:
The Planning Commission will provide the applicant with the contact information of all parties they are required to notify as follows:
Each affected RCO including the “Coordinating RCO.” The Coordinating RCO, which is selected after consultation with the District Council office, is responsible for scheduling and convening the public meeting regarding the Applicant’s proposal;
Each property that the applicant must notify via regular mail or hand delivery. These properties are within 250 ft. of the subject property (see Property Notification diagram);
The office of the District Councilmember;
The Planning Commission
The Zoning Board
The applicant must send written notice to all of the above within 10 days of receiving the contact information from the Planning Commission. By law, this notice must include certain contact information, details about the zoning proposal, and information about the public meeting.
In preparation for the UNNA's RCO meeting, the applicant must:
Make sure to notify the addressees provided.
Email a copy of your notification to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining how the neighbors were notified (via mail or flyers)
Bring any renderings/designs to the meeting
Be prepared to discuss property management issues (emergency contacts, trash collection, parking, rental criteria, marketing plan)
