CITY OF LAFAYETTE, MINNESOTA ORDINANCE 139 AN INTERIM ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ZONING CODE WHEREAS, the City of Lafayette adopted its most recent zoning ordinance on 12/27/1990, which has subsequently been codified in City Code Chapter 151; and WHEREAS, the Council of the City of Lafayette has now determined that the zoning code would better serve the City and members of the public if it contained specific criteria for examining and deciding applications to rezone land and change zoning. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Lafayette, Nicollet County, State of Minnesota, hereby ordains as follows: Section 151.156 of the Code of Ordinances, of the City of Lafayette, as set forth below shall be and is hereby adopted as an interim ordinance effective immediately and continuing for a period of one year following its adoption. §151.156 AMENDMENT DECISION PROCESS (A) Upon receipt of an application for rezoning or zoning amendment by the City Clerk, a copy of the completed application shall be forwarded to the City Council for review and study. (B) The City Council, or a delegation thereof, shall view the area being considered. (C) The City Council shall, prior to making a decision on the application, consider the following: (1) Would the granting of the request conform to the presently accepted future land use plans for the city as well as present land uses. (2) Is it in the community’s best interest for additional land space to be zoned to the class requested. (3) If it is in the community’s best interest for additional land to be zoned as requested, should the re-zoning be done in the areas requested or would the community’s interest be better served if the re-zoning were done in other areas of the city. (4) Would the granting of the re-zoning request adversely affect property values of adjacent landowners to an unreasonable degree, (5) If the request was granted, what additional public services would be required. (6) Is the capacity of existing roads and sewer and water facilities sufficient to accommodate this proposal. (7) Was there an error or oversight in preparing the original zoning map which indicates that this zoning should have been included at that time. (8) Is this change beneficial to the community or is it merely a convenience to the applicant. (D) The City Council shall make written findings of fact supporting its decision, and it shall make a decision either granting or denying the application within 60 days of receiving a complete application.
