      A zoning reclassification may be applied for when a property owner wants to change the official zoning designation on his/her property. The criteria for review and approval of a zoning reclassification are based on the applicable land use designation and policies of the City of Temple Terrace Comprehensive Land Use Plan, the character of the surrounding area as well as other applicable City plans and goals. At least one (but may involve two) public hearing/s are required before the City Council which makes final decision. From filing to final decision, the process typically takes a minimum of three (3) months. The planner assigned to your petition will be your main contact person throughout the process.
