ZDO-252/ZDO-253: Year 3 Zoning and Development Ordinance Audit
Portions of the County's Zoning & Development Ordinance (ZDO) are being reviewed this year as part of a five-year audit. The first year of the work program focused on the county's industrial zoning districts. The second year of the work program focused on procedural standards, urban residential zones, and urban commercial and mixed-use zones. In each of the first two years of the audit, amendments were made to streamline and reorganize portions of the ZDO and to implement new policies. A similar result is expected for this year's audit work, which is focused on rural residential, future urban, and rural commercial zones; development review process; and criteria for discretionary permits.
