for the City of Semmes, Alabama
Adopted September 30th 2014 by the Planning Commission
This plan has been developed over the last year by the Comprehensive Plan “Working Group” and Thompson Engineering from input received from the Semmes Community at local Town Hall Meetings. The work for the plan was funded by a 50% match grant from the
ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND NATURAL RESOURCES.
The Planning Commission has been made aware of “mis-information” distributed
about our Comprehensive Plan.
Please be advised that the Comprehensive Plan:
|*||IS NOT a “zoning ordinance“|
|*||does NOT establish “zoning regulations“|
|*||does NOT establish or create a “Historic District“|
The Comprehensive Plan will in
NO way restrict the use or ownership of any parcel of land.
The Comprehensive Plan is just that – a reflection of the desires and aspirations of our Semmes Community that defines our goals and objectives. It will be used as a roadmap to guide the City into the future with all considerations given to the ideas and suggestions received from the Semmes Community via Town Hall Meetings that were held.
Only the CITY COUNCIL can adopt a “zoning ordinance” – not the Planning Commission.
