Houseal Lavigne Associates, LLC is tasked with rewriting the Zoning and Sign Ordinance. The Zoning and Sign Ordinances have not been comprehensively updated since 1996. Many changes have occurred in the past 23 years, making it necessary for ordinances to change. The Zoning Ordinance contains standards that are outdated, difficult to administer, and is not user-friendly. The current Ordinance does not address many modern standards such as mixed-use development and sustainability.
The Zoning and Sign Ordinance will provide a user-friendly, easy-to-read document that can be understood and interpreted by all users through graphics, illustrations, text, and tables.
