The purpose of this Bill is to clarify who qualifies as an “owner” and who may submit an application for zoning permits pursuant to this Chapter. This Bill further proposes to amend the definition of “Applicant” by eliminating “lessees” or anyone other than the owner, from being an “Applicant.” The purpose of this amendment is to ensure that it is the owner that authorizes any proposed zoning application and not the leaseholder whose lease term may be close to its expiration date. All interested persons who wish to present their comments may do so at the public hearing. Written testimony prior to the hearing would be appreciated. Written testimony can be submitted to the Office of the County Clerk, Council Services Division by mail, facsimile, or via E-mail to Copies of the Bills are available at the Office of the County Clerk, Council Services Division.
