Land Use Code

Proposed Amendments to the Land Use Code

The Land Use Code is a living document that requires periodic housekeeping amendments to make it function properly. Housekeeping amendments are those changes to the code that correct an omission or error in the Code. These amendments are considered to be minor and it's not anticipated that these changes greatly affect the intent or purpose of the Code. Other amendments may be proposed to add land uses that aren't currently covered in the Code or to modify existing uses or requirements.

Two review criteria are considered when amending the Land Use Code:

  1. The proposed changes are consistent with the Master Plan and the intent and purpose of the Land Use Code; and
  2. The proposed changes are necessary to correct an omission or error in the Land Use Code.
