    [IowaAPA] Time limits on reconsidering change of zone applications.

    Good afternoon,

    I'm looking for some information about other communites handle reconsideration of a change of zone when the initial request is turned down by the City Council.

    Mason City's ordinance prohibits filing for or reconsideration of a rezoning request for "the same property or the same property and additional property" unless it has been 12 months since the filing of the original petition.

    We are looking at options to tighten up this language to clarify what "same propety" and "same property and additional property" mean.

    Can you tell me if your community has a similar restriction and if so, can you forward the text to me or send me a link?

    Thanks!

    Tricia, our ordinance sounds just like yours:



    "Whenever any petition for amendment, supplement, or change of the
    zoning or regulations contained in this title or subsequently
    established has been denied by the council, then no new petition
    covering any of the same property or the same property and additional
    property shall be filed with or considered by the council until one year
    has elapsed from the date of the filing of the first petition."

    The City of Dubuque has no time limit restrictions on reconsideration or re-filing of rezoning applications.
