The Second Draft UDO is Here!

The first draft of the Unified Development Ordinance, released in October 2021, generated over 1,200 public comments and many more comments from elected and appointed officials and City and County staff. Many of these comments have been incorporated into the second draft UDO, also referred to as the public hearing draft, which was released for review and comment on Friday, June 3rd. Read the second draft UDO here.



What Can You Expect in the Second Draft?

Two types of changes have been incorporated into the second draft UDO: technical revisions and changes based on community feedback. To help better understand the second draft, we’ve developed a key changes resource document to guide you in your review. This document includes:
