Development Code – Second Major Amendment, Updated 10/11/2018
This second major amendment comes over a year since the adoption of the Development Code. The first major amendment that occurred approximately six months after the adoption, as it was agreed upon at the hearing, proposed changes to key components of the Code, such as the lot coverage and grading in setbacks in single-family districts. This current amendment consists of minor error corrections and other changes that are not anticipated to generate much discussion.
