New Zoning Code and Zoning Map
Planners have rewritten the zoning code and updated the zoning map to modernize antiquated, redundant zoning regulations, and to create new tools to help achieve goals in community plans. The new zoning code and zoning map were adopted by County Council earlier this year and became effective on October 30, 2014.
