The Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Commission will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at Bemidji City Hall for its regular monthly meeting.

The JPC, which makes recommendations to the Joint Planning Board, will consider a rezone request and discuss possible ordinance changes.

Included on the agenda are:

- A rezone request from Kent and Mary Jo Christenson to rezone a 1.52-acre vacant parcel of property at 3503 Minnesota Ave. N.W. from B-1 (low-density commercial) to R-6 (multi-family).

- Discussion on a proposed ordinance that would regulate development in flood-prone areas. The ordinance, which if supported would have a public hearing in January, would make people with homes in areas susceptible to flooding eligible for insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program.

- Discussion of other possible ordinance changes. If supported, the changes would go through the review process beginning in January.
