APC considering streamlining proposal

Sep 15, 2017

The Area Plan Commission has announced a proposal to streamline rezonings, subdivisions, variances, and special use permits. 


Area Plan Commission Executive Director Ron London said it currently takes about 90 days from the time a rezoning petition is filed with the APC for the proposal to be considered by the Evansville City Council or Vanderburgh County Commissioners for a final vote.

He said the proposal would reduce the timeframe to about 42 days.

The proposal would also shorten the time it takes for subdivision reviews from 60 to about 30 days.
