Proposed amendments to zoning law submitted to Saipan lawmakers

THE Saipan Zoning Board has adopted proposed amendments to the Saipan Zoning Act that aim to address concerns regarding development projects on island.

The proposed amendments have been submitted this week to the Saipan and Northern Islands Legislative Delegation for action, zoning administrator Therese Ogumoro said.

She said her office also submitted to the delegation rezoning applications that have been adopted by the zoning board.

“We are expecting questions from them so we are prepared to answer those questions,” she said, referring to the lawmakers.

Ogumoro said the delegation should review the rezoning applications along with the proposed amendments to the zoning law which were based on public comments including those from government agencies.
