BRANSON, Mo. – The City of Branson begins a new rezoning effort by gathering input from residents during an open house on Tuesday.
Planning Assistant Kim Varner says Branson could potentially be divided into 12 districts, with three different categories of commercial zoning, including Community Commercial, Neighborhood Commercial, and Mixed-Use.
She encouraged participants to point out their specific desires on an inter-active map…
The rezoning effort is a continuation of Branson’s Community Plan 2030. City Administrator Bill Malinen says the effort is significant because the current codes have been largely untouched since the mid 1990s.
Planning Director Joel Hornickel says rezoning is necessary to promote economic development and facilitate new and creative attractions.
