Development Ordinances Review & Comment

The city’s Community Development Department will be working in a phased approach when presenting the Land Development Ordinances (LDO) updates and gathering input.

As new draft chapters are added below, there will be an option to provide online comment. Once public review has been completed for all chapters, the comprehensive LDO will go to a public hearing for adoption as a single item. 

Visit the "Process Timeline" section to see when new chapters are anticipated to be added for review and comment.
