Unified Development Code (UDC) Amendment Process
The Unified Development Code (UDC) is Ch. 35 of the municipal code. Updated every five years or through a City Council Consideration Request (CCR) it estabishes rules, policies and procedures for land development. These include zoning, platting, subdivisions, trees and landscaping, street construction, and storm water.
The Development Services Department (DSD) staff can receive UDC update proposals (edits or clarifications) from any city department, agencies, individuals, and interest groups. All amendments must be submitted by February 1, 2022, to DSD's Policy Administration Section.
The updates to the UDC are intended to streamline the development process, reduce its cost by including a cost impact review, and incorporate changes required by State law. As part of the process, extensive discussions are incorporated with the neighborhoods, other city departments, external agencies, and the development community.
