The Godfrey Planning & Zoning Committee is meeting tonight to discuss occupancy permits. While an ordinance was ready to go before the village board a month ago, a number of concerns were pointed out by a local group of realtors and the board decided to kick the ordinance back to committee for further review.
Kyle Anderson, Government Affairs Director of the Greater Gateway Association of Realtors, says he has forwarded a model ordinance to the village's Building & Zoning administrator.
He says the association is not against occupancy permits, but wants ot make sure any ordinance not only provides safe, quality housing in the village, but allows for the quick sale of property. The Planning and Zoning Committee will revisit the issue at its meeting tonight at village hall. That meeting starts at 6:30.
