Interpretation

Interpretation

An Interpretation of the UDO is a formal action that clarifies the meaning of text provisions in the UDO or delineates boundaries on the Official Zoning Map.  A person may request an Interpretation when they are unclear about the meaning of language in the UDO, a use in the use table, or boundaries identified on the Official Zoning Map.  Interpretation requests may be initiated by a City review body or by anyone authorized to file an application.  Additionally, City staff may use Interpretations to manage decision-making concerning the UDO.  Interpretations are maintained in a formal fashion to promote consistency and transparency.
