The Village of Allouez, through its Request for Proposals (RFP), is seeking qualified planning and zoning consultants, multi-disciplinary firms, or teams to undertake a complete zoning ordinance rewrite project. The new zoning code must be easy to read, understandable by the public, and enforceable by the village.
The original zoning code was written in the 1970’s with periodic insertions of different sections and minor maintenance corrections made over the years. The current state of the zoning code includes parts that are no longer consistent with development goals of the Village of Allouez, language which makes effective code review by staff difficult, and processes which make efficient infill development challenging. The existing code does not function in an era of technology that provides fast answers.
