Documents for Public Review

What is the Goal of this Update?

The primary goal of the Zoning Use Table Update is to reduce barriers to investment in Urban Growth Areas (UGA), Limited Areas of More Intense Rural Development (LAMIRD), and the rural commercial and rural industrial zones.

The project will address:

Housing Equity and Diversity

The project will encourage a wide array of housing product types within the various urban and LAMIRD zones, including addressing gaps in the land use categories and definitions.

Economic Development

The project will encourage economic development by:

  • Scaling land uses to streamline the level of permit review required.
  • Adding new land uses based on projects submitted to the Department and a comparison of other jurisdictions.

Making the Code Easier to Use

Finally, the project will improve predictability and ease of use for applicants and permit reviewers.
