Development Guide

The Development Guide was created to make the City’s Zoning standards and processes easier to understand for developers and their site plan design teams while the City works on developing the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). 

On August 11, 2021 the Unified Development Ordinance went into effect. A revised Development Guide is in process and will be available soon. In the meantime, you can access the complete UDO here or at
