Building, Expanding & Moving

Available Properties

The city tracks a list of available commercial, industrial and office spaces that are for sale or for lease.

Zoning Map

The zoning map shows what type of land use is permitted for each parcel of land in New Hope.

Zoning Code

The city's zoning code contains all of the local laws and regulations (ordinances) that stipulate how things are done in New Hope and what types of uses are permitted or conditional in each zoning district. Conditional uses must be reviewed by the Planning Commission and approved by the City Council.

Development Review

The Design and Review subcommittee meets with applicants to review site and building expansion projects before they come before the Planning Commission. It is comprised of members of the Planning Commission.

Design Guidelines

The New Hope Design Guidelines serve three primary functions:
  1. To guide developers or property owners proposing expansions, renovations, or new construction of buildings
    or parking in commercial, industrial, and multifamily residential areas.
  2. To facilitate dialog between the city and developers/property owners to achieve creative design solutions.
  3. To assist city officials, commissioners, and staff in reviewing development proposals.

The guidelines, by definition, are a set of recommended design goals for new and existing buildings and sites. The guidelines set forth the general desired character for commercial, industrial, and multifamily residential properties, suggesting overall character without dictating specific design requirements.

Permits

Permits are required before most construction-related projects may begin. Visit the permits page to learn more.
