Unified Development Code

This area is responsible for most facets of administering the Unified Development Code. The Unified Development Code is a comprehensive ordinance containing nearly all regulations related to the physical development of a piece of property. This area also handles requests for rezoning, variances, special exceptions and conditional use permits.

Land development can be a complex process. To help make it a bit easier, the City organizes a weekly Development Review Committee meeting. This meeting serves as an opportunity to get everybody involved in the land development process into the same room to answer a potential applicant’s questions. Whether you’re simply trying to subdivide your lot, change the zoning or your property, or considering a multi-million dollar development, these meetings can make your experience much more efficient.
