Land Development Code
The Planning and Zoning Department, in conjunction with the Planning and Zoning Commission, works to apply the City's Land Development Code (LDC) to development and re-development occurring within the City.
The City's Land Development Code is divided into eight chapters which are available for review and download in PDF format at the following link:
"Building an Exciting Vision for the Future based on Community Consensus and Heritage"
The Planning and Zoning Department is pleased to present Architectural and Site Development Guidelines which were developed with the Public, Planning and Zoning Commission and City Commission. These guidelines and codes establish the quality and appearance of development and re-development that will occur within the City. The guidelines and codes address Commercial, Institutional, Office, Multi-Family / Condominium, Mixed Use development and Sign standards.
The Guidelines and Sign Code are available for download and review in PDF format at the following link:
At the February 15, 2006 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, the P&Z Commission moved to recommend the draft guidelines and draft sign code to the City Commission for consideration and inclusion into the City's Land Development Code. At the June 8, 2006 regular City Commission meeting the City Commission approved Ordinance #06-03 adopting the Architectural and Site Standards, and approved Ordinance #06-04 adopting the revised Sign Code. These elements are now official requirements for development and re-development within the City. They will be included in the City's Land Development Code at the next codification.
If you have immediate questions or comments concerning the Architectural and Site Guidelines, please feel free to contact the City at (386) 698-2525.
