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.
