Summary Explanation/Background

On March 1, 2022, the Board directed the Office of the County Attorney to draft an Ordinance migrating the provisions related to site plan review procedures and requirements within the unincorporated area from the Land Development Code to the Zoning Code.  The proposed Ordinance does not impose any additional requirements to existing site plan review procedures or requirements within the unincorporated area.  The proposed Ordinance also amends the Zoning Code to replace each instance of "Planning and Development Management Division" throughout the article with "Urban Planning Division," and each instance of "Environmental Protection and Growth Management Department" with "Resilient Environment Department."
