The City is proposing an update to the development regulations.  The Land Development Ordinances (LDO) will replace the current Surprise Unified Development Code (SUDC).  This will incorporate changes to names and abbreviations of zoning districts, modify some permitted uses, and clarify the standards for site development, open space, and general development regulations. 

The City is also updating and consolidating the separate design and engineering books into a single Planning and Engineering Design Standards (PEDS) to complement the ordinances.   Since we launched the update process, there has been across-the-board teamwork with stakeholders of all disciplines within the development community of the draft chapters, which is also presented and discussed at, Planning and Zoning Commission meetings, and City Council Work Sessions. These discussions provided great collaboration and guided revisions and improvements to the proposed drafts.

The Citizen Review meetings will be an overview of the proposed draft and discussions with stakeholders, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and City Council.  These meetings are intended to bring the public up to speed on the land use regulations and what this process means for the City.  The public is invited to ask questions and provide input on the propose draft regulations.
