Georgetown City Council meets monthly on the second and fourth Tuesday in the Council and Courts Building at 808 Martin Luther King Jr. St., Georgetown.

The city of Georgetown will notify registered neighborhood, homeowner and property owner associations of proposed land use changes for properties in areas governed by an association or within 300 feet of the association’s boundary beginning July 1, according to a news release.

Association managers or representatives can go to planning.georgetown.org and click “Neighborhood Association Notification Registration” to begin the registration process, the release said. Representatives will be notified of changes in land use, including rezoning and special use permits, as well as other changes, it said.

“These changes go a long way to increase our outreach when it comes to changes in land use,” Mayor Dale Ross said in the release. “Notifying property owners within 300 feet, homeowner associations and people in the [extraterritorial jurisdiction] goes well beyond state law and is a model for transparency in governance.”

City Council adopted the new notification standards June 11 as a method to increase public review and provide additional opportunities for adjacent residents to learn about, discuss and provide feedback on proposed requests in advance of the public hearing process, the release said.

In addition, the changes increase the notification radius from 200 feet to 300 feet and require the city to notify property owners in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction of requested changes, the release said.
