The public will have a chance to weigh in on new regulations that are expected to guide how growth will look in the city for years to come.
City leaders will conduct an open house meeting on the city's new development code from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets.
The development code would replace the city's current zoning code, which staff members have said is badly outdated.
The Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission will have a formal public hearing on the code on Feb. 22. The City Commission will consider adopting the code in March.
A copy of the draft version of the code is available online at www.lawrenceplanning.org.
