Zoning Ordinance Update

The City of Emporia, with collaboration with the Berkley Group, has been working on a comprehensive update of the City's Zoning and Subdivision Ordnance. This process started in the spring of 2022 and we are excited to have a completed draft of the new ordinance. The City is on pace to adopt this ordinance in the Spring of 2024. The City encourages anyone who has questions or input to please contact the Planning and Zoning Director, Matthew Culbreath, and to please attend the upcoming public workshops and meetings. Please see the draft of the zoning and subdivision ordinance (PDF) as well as a memo highlighting the major changes (PDF).
