Regulation Amendments

4th Quarter 2019 Regulation Amendments

Planning & Zoning is working on a Regulation Amendment (19-121011AM) pertaining to the Zoning Resolution (ZR), Land Development Regulation (LDR), Transportation Design and Construction Manual (TDCM) and Storm Drainage Design & Technical Criteria (SDDTC). This regulation update is mainly intended to clarify processes and make minor updates to the ZR, LDR, TDCM, and the SDDTC so that they are easier to use and navigate. Some of the proposed amendments that are more substantial in nature include:

  • Modifications to the Vacation of Right of Way requirements
  • Implementation of the Property Merger reversal
  • Modifications to the Pavement Design process

A “Summary of the Proposed 4th Quarter Regulation Updates” outlines all the proposed changes and can be viewed in the folder here: Summary of Updates.
