Notice is hereby given to all interested persons that a virtual public hearing will be held by the Planning Commission of the City of Westminster on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at 7 p.m. Lokal Hyland Village LLC, the owner of parcel 5245 West 97th Avenue, located at the northwest corner of West 97th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, has encroached approximately 1 foot into the required 5-foot rear and 8-foot side setbacks on the northeast corner of the lot. The total footprint of the encroachment is 1.58 square feet. To permit this encroachment, approval of an Official Development Plan (ODP) Amendment is being requested. See below for additional information and instructions on how to give testimony electronically for the virtual public hearing.

*Please note: As a reminder, due to the President’s Declaration of a National Emergency, the Governor’s Declaration of a State Emergency, and Westminster's Declaration of a State of Emergency, Westminster City Hall is closed to the public until further notice. Due to concerns around public input during the COVID-19 crisis, the Planning Commission meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 23 will be held virtually, with a GoToWebinar link and instructions to be provided in advance.


The Planning Commission conducts public hearings and provides a recommendation to City Council on the following: review of the city's Comprehensive Land Use Plan, proposed development plans, review of proposed annexations, zoning and rezoning requests, and zoning regulations related to development controls. The commission has final approval authority on official development plans and recommends action to City Council regarding annexations, rezonings, Comprehensive Land Use Plan amendments, preliminary development plans, and zoning regulation amendments.

A primary goal is to balance the interests of the development community with the interests of the residents and neighborhoods to create a city the citizens can be proud of into the future. Planning Commission meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month on an as-needed basis at 7 p.m. Meetings last between one and two hours each.
