Manhattan city commissioners on Tuesday will look at updates to city zoning and other regulations in the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).
The work session begins at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. No votes will take place at this meeting.
The UDO will combine zoning and subdivision regulations into one document to monitor city development and land usage, according to city officials.
Some of the changes involve replacing old zones with new zoning districts including low-density residential, medium-density residential and urban core residential, among others.
Officials said the goal is to simply the regulations within each zone.
The updates also allow the establishment of tiny homes in various districts.
After the commission gives feedback on the document, administrators said they anticipate the document will be ready for public viewing in October. Formal adoption of the UDO is expected during the middle of next year.
Along with the city, Gateway Planning, Confluence, and White and Smith Attorneys at Law and Kendig Keast Collaborative have assisted with updating the UDO.
The Riley County Police Department will provide an update to the commissioners at the beginning of the meeting.
