Unified Development Ordinance Project Is Underway!

Code rewrite kickoff

The City of Douglasville has a very important Unified Development Ordinance project underway.

This project will be led by Jacobs, the consulting firm the City has contracted with for Community Development staff augmentation services.

The goals of the project are to update the City’s land development codes to bring them up to industry standards, eliminate conflicts and redundancies, and improve their readability and ease of use.    The process will examine City codes and ordinances that may be outdated and in need of revision, including the zoning ordinance and development regulations, and combine them to form a Unified Development Ordinance. Jacobs and City staff will work with a Steering Committee to get feedback on revisions and updates throughout the process.  The public will have an opportunity to weigh in on changes by reviewing content and providing comments on the project website, and by participating in a community workshop in September.

The need for a zoning rewrite was identified by Jacobs in their recent evaluation of the City’s Community Development Services area. The contract awarded to Jacobs was part of the Mayor and Council 2017 goals for the City’s future growth. Jacobs has set up douglasvilleudo.com to keep you informed, and listen to your feedback about the project as it progresses.
