GALVESTON The city s new Land Development Regulations might not be completed until 2014, the city s planning director said.

Speaking at a meeting of the Galveston Association of Island Neighbors on Thursday, Planning Director Richard Vasquez said budget limitations will soon mean the end of involvement by the consulting company hired to write the regulations. That, combined with the pace of review being completed by the city s planning commission, could push the project into next year.

Vasquez said the consulting group, HDR Inc., is scheduled to participate in two more planning commission meetings and one more city council meeting. The group, which includes both legal and urban planning advisers, has been crafting the regulations that are meant to update and standardize the city s rules for development.
