Public Draft  


Consolidating 14 seperate ordinances into one ordinance with 5 parts, the new ordinance is in a completely different structure and format. The new structure allows for the consolidation of many repetitive sections into one; accomodates mixed use districts easily; uses many more tables and graphics; and makes the ordinance much easier to use.

A key change to the ordinance is the Permitted Use Table. The table lists all of the basic "by-right" districts and a broad list of uses. "By-right" districts are the zoning districts that allow specific uses without obtaining public approval at a hearing, such as C-3 or D-5.   With the permitted uses identified, the table also indicates if there are use-specific standards that are required regardless of the district.

Once the district and use are known, the district standards and the development standards can then be applied. Take a look at the framework below.
