Land Development Code Updates in Process

Watercolor SkylineThe Land Development Code (LDC) contains regulations for the development and use of property, including zoning, subdivisions and other related land use activities. The City Planning Department monitors and continually updates the code to simplify and streamline the permitting processes, assure compliance with state and federal regulations, eliminate unnecessary barriers, redundancies and contradictions, and align policy with the City's climate, equity, and housing goals.

For questions about LDC updates, please email

Current Single-Issue Updates

The Housing Policy team processes single-issue updates and amendments to the LDC as needed. Single-issue updates may be processed separately from a comprehensive code update for various reasons, including time sensitivity and/or complexity.

There are no single-issue LDC updates currently being processed.

If you want to submit a code amendment request for the next LDC update, the submission portal is open until July 31, 2024. Please visit the Code Update Request webpage to submit your idea.
