Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment - Overview
City staff is currently proposing text amendments to our Zoning Ordinance that will allow for continued refinement to reflect changes in policy and procedures, new development trends, address changes to industry standards, respond to recently adopted legislative regulations, enhance the overall usability and accuracy, and allow for general housekeeping and clerical corrections.
Zoning Ordinance Update 2017 - Draft
LED Streetlight Conversion Project Updates
On or about January, 22 2018, crews working on behalf of the City will begin changing out the HPS fixtures on every city owned and maintain streetlight pole, and replacing them with the new LED fixtures. Work within residential areas will be completed during daylight working hours, and work occurring on larger ‘arterial’ streets (McDowell & Avondale Blvd) will occur overnight to avoid disrupting routine traffic.
Construction will generally occur in a quadrant fashion (using the Agua Fria and I-10 as dividers), and will begin in the Northwest corner of the city, moving the the South West quadrant, then the South East, and finally concluding in the North East. (Estimated timeline below.) The project will be substantially complete, barring unforeseen circumstances, by May of 2018.
