Requests for Rezoning, Special Exceptions, Variances and Text Amendments to the Land Use Resolutions for Crawford County and Roberta require two public hearings. The first public hearing will be held before the Commision which makes a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners or City Council. A decision is made by the appropriate governing body at the second public hearing.

The Commission considers the following when making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners/ City Council regarding Zoning requests:
a) Any zoning decision should promote the health, safety and general welfare of the citizens of Crawford County.
b) Any zoning decision should prevent the overcrowding of land and the undue concentration of Population.
c) Any zoning decision should facilitate the adequate provision of transportation and public roadways, water utilities, sewerage, garbage collection, schools, parks and other public requirements.
d) Any zoning decision should secure safety from fire, panic, traffic congestion and other dangers.
e) Any zoning decision should permit a use that is suitable in view of the use, development and zoning of adjacent and nearby property.
f) Any zoning decision should not adversely affect the existing use or usability of adjacent or nearby property.
g) Any zoning decision should give consideration to whether the subject property has a reasonable economic use as currently zoned and the extent to which its value is diminished by its current zoning.
h) Any zoning decision should give consideration to the presence of existing or changing conditions affecting the use and development of the subject property.
i) The effect of any zoning restrictions in promoting the health, safety, morals, or general welfare of the general public should be greater than and should justify the hardship imposed on the owner whose property value is lowered by the restriction.
j) The subject property should be suitable for the zoned purposes.
k) The zoning decisions should take into account the length of time the property has been vacant as zoned, considered in the context of land development in the area in the vicinity of the property.
