Text Amendment

Text Amendment

The UDO text is the language that regulates the use of land through the establishment of zoning districts, use standards, development standards, provisions for nonconformities, and enforcement. The language in the UDO may be amended through the Text Amendment application procedure.

Text amendments may be initiated by the City Council, by City staff (unilaterally or under the direction of the Planning Commission, Zoning Commission, or Historic Resources Commission), or by another interested party.   

Public hearings are required at the Planning Commission and City Council.
