§ 156.060  APPLICATION FOR ZONING MAP AND TEXT AMENDMENTS.
   (A)   A proposal for a zoning map amendment may originate with the Planning Commission, the Murray City Council, the owner of the subject property, or by a person having notarized written authorization from the owner of the subject property. Regardless of the origin of the proposed map amendment, an application must be filed with the Planning Commission at least 21 days prior to the regular monthly meeting date requesting the proposed amendment in such form and accompanied by such information as required by the Zoning Official.  The Commission may require the submission of further information subsequent to the filing of an application as provided by the zoning code. An incomplete application will not be docketed for public hearing. At the time of filing an application, a nonrefundable filing fee shall be paid according to the schedule of fees as established by this chapter; however, there shall be no filing fee for a zoning map amendment requested by the Murray City Council, the Planning Commission, or any governmental agency. Upon the filing of an application for a map amendment by a governmental body, the Commission shall promptly notify the owner of the subject property by first class mail. In accordance with KRS 100.212, regardless of the origin of a proposed zoning map amendment, the owners of all property adjoining the subject property shall be notified. Property owners across public rights-of-way shall be notified as they are considered adjoining.
   (B)   A proposal for a text amendment may originate with any person, the Planning Commission, or the Murray City Council. Regardless of the origin of the proposed text amendment, it shall be referred to the Planning Commission for review prior to a public hearing being scheduled.
