A written decision will be provided to the applicant and made available to the public and interested parties.  It may take several days for the decision to be signed and sent or posted.

There is a 15 day appeal period where applicants or someone who provided written or verbal testimony on the application may appeal the decision to the City Council (if the decision was made by the Planning and Zoning Commission or Design Review Committee).  If no appeal is received, the decision is final.  If there is an appeal, it will be scheduled in accordance with Garden City Code 8-6A-9: Link.  The City Council may also schedule a review of the Planning and Zoning Commission’s decision within 15 days of the Commission hearing date if the Council feels the decision may have been issued incorrectly or in error.

If the decision is made be the City Council  a  reconsideration request may be made within 14 days of the formal decision being rendered.   There is not a formal form to fill out or a fee associated for a reconsideration.  State Statute requires that the reconsideration request include specific deficiencies in the decision.  If the City Council grants the reconsideration request a new public hearing will be scheduled. 

Final decisions are subject to a 28-day right to judicial review pursuant to The Idaho Administrative Procedures Act, Chapter 65 Title 67 Idaho Code.  A takings analysis pursuant to Idaho Code may be requested on final decisions.
