: Since the Jan. 8 post below, the following changes have been made to this proposed set of amendments.

1. On Item 2, as listed on the staff report, a few changes were made:

a. "Consistency" has been defined in a new Sub-Section 1.9B.
b. The existing list of neighborhood plans in this section will remain as-is (this is now Sub-Section 1.9D).
c. A new Sub-Section 1.9C articulates that zoning (the zoning code, the zoning map and the overlays) will remain in effect with the adoption of Memphis 3.0. 
d. References to the Major Road Plan have been deleted until a more refined Major Road Plan element of Memphis 3.0 is drafted and approved.

2. On Item 5, blood plasma donation centers have been added as a use permitted in the Heavy Industrial zoning district. Also within Item 5, a cross-reference is added in 2.5.2 for resource extraction uses.

3. On Item 9, a new provision is added requiring truck stops to be at major intersections.

4. On Item 26, two more cross-references are added to the sign section of the Code.

5. On Item 27, misspellings and inconsistencies in the sign section of the Code are addressed.

7. On Item 34, a missing period is added to Sub-Section 8.4.10A.

8. On Item 41, changes are proposed to the ASPR section memorializing current practice.

Here is the staff report that reflects all of these changes and will be presented to the Land Use Control Board on Feb. 14; here is the completed UDC that reflects them.
