Question:

My neighbor received a notice of a Public Hearing from the City of Meridian regarding a change to a property next to our subdivision, why didn’t I receive a notice also?

Answer:

Public Hearing notices are sent to property owners or purchasers of record (as listed in the current records of the Ada County assessor) owning property within three hundred feet (300’) of the property being considered. This noticing is extended to property owners within one thousand feet (1,000’) of the external property boundaries if the application involves heavy industries and/or wireless communication facilities.
