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, and eliminate unnecessary barriers, redundancies and contradictions.

Information regarding annual and single-issue LDC updates currently being processed and managed by the Housing Policy team can be found here.

Since 2020, LDC updates have been processed annually and named by processing year (i.e. 2020 and 2021) rather than update number (i.e. 13th Update).

Please check back for updated content as the amendments move through the hearing process.

For questions about LDC updates, please email

Current Single-Issue Updates

The Housing Policy team processes single-issue updates and amendments to the Land Development Code (LDC) on an as-needed basis. Single-issue updates may be processed separately from a comprehensive code update for a variety of reasons, including time sensitivity and/or complexity.

There are no single-issue LDC updates currently in process at this time.
