UDO Draft Available ImageThe Wait is Over! 

At long last, the first draft of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) is here. We are grateful to
the UDO staff members, our consultant Camiros, the City Interdepartmental Team, and our
Ordinance Advisory Committee for their feedback and discussion that have been critical in shaping this first draft.   

The UDO will include many new regulatory approaches in areas that include parking, tree preservation, transportation, and drainage and will expand on how we advance community priorities of affordable housing, public open space, and the environment as well as promote small, minority, and women-owned firms.  

We are expecting four drafts of the UDO and all drafts after the initial release will be redlined for clarity on additions and deletions.  Our current schedule requests Council adoption in July 2022.
