Draft Proposed Text & Background Documents

 

See below under "Task Force Documents" to find the most recent DRAFT regulations, along with explanatory documents. If you need assistance with documents or images, please contact the Zoning Update team.


This page contains drafts of the proposed text  for the updated version of the Zoning Code. This text is the result of four years of public outreach and participation. 

The updated Zoning Code is based in large part on ideas and goals expressed in the Comprehensive Plan, and in the many public working groups held over 2008 - 2011. The new code also retains many important concepts, procedures and standards from the existing Zoning Regulations.

Click here to learn how the new Zoning Code is organized.

When drafts are presented to the Zoning Commission, for each Chapter of proposed text, the following documents will be provided:
  • Summary of the proposed updates
  • Draft text (same as seen before the Zoning Commission)
  • Report to the Zoning Commission on the draft text
Drafts marked "Task Force" are preliminary review drafts provided to the citizen Task Force that reviews the Office of Planning's work. After the Task Force's review, there will be several opportunities for public comment, and to learn more about how the new Zoning Code will work.
