Lancaster County officials have scheduled meetings to receive public comment on a proposed development ordinance and proposed zoning maps for the county’s comprehensive plan.
The county is updating its unified development ordinance, or UDO, which includes standards for zoning districts, infrastructure and general development as well as natural resources protection and the official zoning map.
The UDO is used to implement the comprehensive plan and is mandated in the South Carolina Planning Act.
The meetings will be held at the Lancaster County Historic Courthouse, 100 N. Main Street, second floor, in Lancaster from 1-8 p.m. Tuesday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Residents can review their parcels, the proposed zoning and draft chapters of the UDO.
“An important part of this project has been to involve all stakeholders in the development of the updated UDO,” said Bob Bundy, chair of the Lancaster County Council. “With the participation of all Lancaster County residents, the UDO will positively impact both our rural and urban areas.”
The UDO also will be reviewed at Planning Commission workshops April 7 and May 5.
A public hearing is expected in May.
