2023 Land Use Code Updates
On November 1, 2022, City Council adopted a new Land Development Code that would have replaced the 1997 Land Use Code. A referendum was received and certified sufficient by the City Clerk regarding the City’s new Land Development Code. As a result, the new code was repealed and did not go into effect on January 1, 2023. Click HERE for additional information on the referendum.
At a City Council work session on February 14th, City staff outlined potential paths forward for housing-related changes to the Land Use Code, as a replacement for the repealed Land Development Code. Over the coming months City staff will be re-engaging the community and drafting new code language, with the hope of returning to City Council with a new code for adoption in late summer or early fall.
NEW: City Council will see a new draft of the Land Use Code on October 3, 2023. You can read it at our Land Use Code page here: https://www.fcgov.com/housing/lucupdates
