The Land Development Code (LDC) contains regulations for the development and use of property including zoning, subdivisions, and other related land use activities. The Housing, Ordinance and Policy (HOP) team monitors and continually updates the code to simplify and streamline the permitting processes, assure compliance with state and federal regulations, and eliminate unnecessary barriers, redundancies and contradictions. Through these regular updates, the LDC will be more responsive to address the City’s changing land use issues.
