What if my property is not designated as wet?

The process to designate a property as a wet zone is very similar to a zoning change except for small differences in the application and list of requirements. An ordinance also has to be passed by the City Council. 

In considering a designation, several factors are substantially reviewed, such as:

  • Abutting property owners' objections/comments
  • Harmony of use within area
  • Nearness to schools, churches, hospitals, or libraries
  • Number of similar establishments within same block
  • Ratio of number of businesses to population
  • Zoning classification

The process takes about 4 months. Application cost is $150. Please contact the Office of the City Secretary for more information.
