Solar Ordinance

Project Description 

The City of Wayzata proposed a Zoning Ordinance Amendment that created a new Chapter in the Wayzata City Code – Chapter 938 Solar Ordinance. The Solar Ordinance regulates all solar energy system installations in the city. Previously, there were no specific regulations for solar energy systems in the City Code. The public hearing also considered minor Zoning Ordinance Amendments to Chapter 902 – Rules and Regulations, and Chapter 909 – Design Standards. 

The Development Application included the following request:

  • Zoning Text Amendment

City Review Dates

  • Planning Commission meeting - January 10, 2023 (Recommended Approval)
  • Planning Commission meeting - January 24, 2023
  • City Council meeting - February 7, 2023 (Approved 4-0)
