How do I apply for an NCO?
The NCO application process requires a dedicated group of residents
to embark on an inclusive, neighborhood-led effort to gather a strong
consensus among property owners in the original subdivision.
Submitting an application for review does not guarantee City Council
approval. The Unied Development Ordinance (UDO) Article 5.11 includes
the NCO application requirements. The NCO Rezoning Process Checklist
outlines the required steps to submit an application to Planning and
Development Services for review.

Neighborhood Petition Committee roles outline.

adequate notice before scheduled neighborhood meetings using the
