Zoning Code Revision
The reorganization includes adding and re-numbering of sections along with a number of minor grammatical and formatting edits. The amendments include numerous individual additions, deletions, and re-wordings to update, improve and clarity the Zoning Code. A line-by-line comparison of the former Code to the proposed revision is not feasible due to the comprehensive re-organization and size of the document.
Below is the draft revision for the Public's review. Hard copies are available in the Department of Community Development and Planning.
