Planning and Zoning 101 Workshop

GOODYEAR, AZMost people don’t develop an interest in planning and zoning issues until it becomes a NIMBY (Not In My BackYard) issue. Whether you have an interest as a NIMBY or just want to be a better informed citizen with a fundamental understanding of basic planning and zoning issues, Goodyear has a great workshop for you.


Goodyear’s Community Development Director Harvey Krauss is teaching a Planning and Zoning 101 Workshop from 6 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, April 3 at the Goodyear Community Development Office, 195 N. 145th Ave., Building D, in the Venida Business Park on the south side of Van Buren Avenue.


Planning and Zoning 101 Workshop has been of the most popular classes during past Southwest Valley Citizen Academies. Now, Harvey Krauss is offering the workshop exclusively for Goodyear residents. He will answer important questions, such as:


  • What is a Planned Area Development?
  • How does the General Plan guide us?
  • What types of zoning are there?
  • What are stipulations?
  • What is site planning vs. platting?
  • When are public hearings required?
  • When is a special use permit required?


Sandwiches will be served. If you are planning to attend, please R.S.V.P. to Jo Brooks at 623-882-7957 by 5 p.m., April 1.
