The second Planning Commission Forum will be on September 1 at 4:30 p.m. in the same location and will include presentations on Residential and Cluster Overlay Districts, Rural Lands, and the Subdivision Ordinance and Green Matters.

The Zoning Ordinance is the legal document that defines the appropriate uses for properties throughout the County. The Subdivision Ordinance is the set of regulations that establishes how new lots can be created. The Planning Division is undertaking the ordinance update in order to implement and put into practice many of the concepts expressed in the recently adopted 2009 Comprehensive Plan.
