Citizen council reveals lack of oversight with zoning change

A lot of factors combined to allow a zoning change which eventually led to approval of a proposed high-rise apartment complex at 1000 North and 600 East. The change resulted in outrage among many nearby residents who said they had no knowledge such a change was even being considered.Local Attorney Brent Hoggan chaired a citizens commission appointed by residents to review the adoption of Logan’s land development code and zoning map. At Tuesday night’s Logan City Council meeting, Hoggan said his finding showed the city council adopted the code and zoning map on February 1, 2011.”At this time, the 10th North and 6th East zoning change had been made in the map,” Hoggan told the council. “But the change was not brought to the council’s attention by the city planner nor anyone else. “No inquiry was made by the council of any changes. At the time of the adoption of the code and map, none of the council members were aware of the 10th North and 6th East zoning change.”Hoggan’s report to the city council contained numerous other findings along with recommendations.
