St. Leon Public Meeting

The St. Leon Plan & Zone Commission will hold a public meeting to review a DRAFT update of the St. Leon Zoning Map on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011 at the Post 464 American Legion. The Plan Commission public hearing is set to begin at 7:30pm; however, the DRAFT zoning map is not scheduled to be reviewed and discussed with the public until decisions have been rendered for all other case-sensitive items that are on the agenda.

The Plan Commission, staff, and consultant will review the DRAFT zoning map proposal and will field and address questions, comments, concerns and recommendations from the community. All interested parties may obtain an agenda or staff report for this meeting by visiting the Dearborn County Department of Planning & Zoning office—located on the third floor of the Administration building—or by accessing these items online at the following website:


For the past 4 years, the St. Leon Plan & Zone Commission and Town Council have been working with staff and consultant Joe Rathz to prepare updates to the Town’s zoning and subdivision control ordinances and the community’s zoning map. The previous ordinances and map were originally adopted in 1993. In November of 2010, the St. Leon Town Council adopted updated to the zoning and subdivision control ordinances—following 3 years of work and public hearings administered by the Plan Commission. In the past 6 months, the St. Leon Plan Commission has moved forward with the final portion of the zoning update process, allowing for the creation of a map to be discussed with the public for input and feedback prior to any formal review and action by the affected Town boards.

Public Review & Comment

Hard copies of the draft Zoning Map and the current Zoning Map will be on display for public review at the Dearborn County Department of Planning & Zoning as well as the Town of St. Leon offices. Digital copies of the both documents may also be obtained online at Public comment forms are also available—both online and at the Dearborn County Planning & Zoning Office—for those who would like to forward written comments or for individuals who may not be able to attend the May 4th meeting.
