PALESTINE, Texas (March 20, 2017) – The City of Palestine has posted an online survey asking citizens what they would like to see in Palestine’s future development.
The city’s Zoning Steering Committee, in conjunction with the city’s Development Services Department and consultants, is in the process of updating the city’s zoning code. The zoning code was implemented in 1968, and last updated 25 years ago.
The survey, found online at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/HNF8KYC
, gives residents choices on their preferences on development, like shopping centers, downtown developments, apartment complexes and residential neighborhoods. The surveys also give residents the option on how these developments might look.
Zoning consultants Stantec will collect and analyze the online and paper surveys for the Zoning Steering Committee. The committee will then advise the consultants and Development Services on the future zoning code update.
The survey will remain open until April 6. For more information on the city’s Zoning Code Update, visit the city’s website at cityofpalestinetx.com.
