Public Hearings

Have a question about a posted public hearing sign?
By city ordinance, public hearing notice signs are required to be posted in plain view of the public on or near the existing property line at least seven (7) days prior to the date of the public hearing. Public hearings are typically held for requests including conditional use permits, variances, rezone requests, and annexations. See the chart below for information regarding upcoming public hearings. For further questions, call Community Development Services at 479-268-4980.
