Subject: Lowndes County - ULDC Update - TXT-2010-02 - Chapter 2 - Zoning Districts and Land Uses
Good afternoon. This e-mail marks one of the final communications
regarding the proposed draft amendments to Chapter 2 of the Lowndes
County Unified Land Development Code (ULDC). Please be advised that
the Lowndes County Board of Commissioners (LCBOC) intend to hold one
more public hearing to consider the attached amendments to the ULDC.
The proposed amendments represent updates to Chapter 2 of the ULDC.
Chapter 2 of the ULDC dominantly defines the zoning districts and
classifies which land uses are allowed in those districts. The primary
motivation for this request stems from direction by Lowndes County
leadership to do a review of the ULDC. The guiding principles in that
review were to simplify the ULDC, make the regulations defensible, and
finally to make the ULDC processes timely.
Efforts were made to present the amendments in a strikethrough and
underline format where [DEL: strikethrough text :DEL] represents
proposed deletions and underlined text represents proposed new text.
Additional efforts were made to highlight changes by color to reference
opinion by planning staff as to whether the change was likely to result
in increasing regulations (red), decreasing regulations (green), or no
real change in regulations (black). Highlighted text represents a
point where additional background information is available upon
request. The attachments represent the amendments that have taken into
account public comments, the results of the initial public hearing by
the GLPC, recommendations by the Lowndes County Technical Review
Committee (TRC) and the GLPC, and any subsequent updates at this point
in time. The blue text or tracked changes symbolizes changes that have
come about after the GLPC meeting.
These amendments are scheduled to be considered by the LCBOC for a
decision on November 9^th at 5:30 pm. The LCBOC meeting will be held
in the County Commission Chambers at 327 North Ashley Street – 2^nd
Floor. For questions, comments, or concerns please either make plans
to attend and comment at the public hearing, respond to this e-mail,
call (229) 671-2424, or visit the LCBOC Planning Office at 327 North
Ashley Street -2^nd Floor between the hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration and please feel
free to forward this e-mail and its attachment to anyone interested in
land development within the unincorporated areas of Lowndes County.
This e-mail is an attempt to notify those interested in land
development within the unincorporated areas of Lowndes County. Should
you wish to be removed from this list please respond to this e-mail
with that request.
