Unified Development Ordinance

The Planning and Economic Development Department is also currently in the process of completely overhauling its Zoning and Development Ordinances into one Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). The UDO is expected to be completed in 2017.

During the UDO drafting and review process, the goals identified in the Green Infrastructure (GI) Plan and illustrated in prioritized maps can be utilized to develop regulations that will facilitate implementation.

The GI Plan will also provide the Town with valuable information and maps during the development of the 2019 Comprehensive Plan because the Plan model can be updated, as needed, with additional data. Town staff, Council, and Boards and Commissions are also expected to use the GI plan on a regular basis to guide decision making during future land development and restoration projects.
