Nauvoo on Track to Pass Zoning Ordinance

NAUVOO, ILLINOIS -- The Nauvoo City Council has passed the first reading of its new proposed zoning ordinance, but won't be done with the bill before a moratorium on new building permits expires May 15th. The moratorium was imposed and the ordinance proposed after The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced plans to rebuild the Nauvoo Temple and real estate developers announced building plans in the town. Nauvoo previously had no zoning law.

The council must still consider proposed amendments to the ordinance, including the concerns that three residential areas are too close to commercial zones. As a result, the Council will next consider the ordinance on May 22nd in a joint meeting with the town planning commission.

That delay leaves a period of time after the expiration of the moratorium and before the new ordinance is past, during which developers can apply for building permits. However, city officials say that the moratorium will not be extended.
