Amendment of Various Chapters of the LDC

LDC Amendments

Text Amendment 2021.04

Request: to amend chapters 2, 15, 18, 19, and 20 of the Land Development Code (LDC) to bring codes into compliance with state law.

Background: Chapter 160D of the North Carolina General Statutes is a major re codification and modernization of city and county development regulations signed enacted on July 11, 2019. Cities and counties were required to amend regulations in compliance with these changes by January 1, 2021; however, due to the pandemic, the compliance date was extended to July 2021. Due to the sheer size of the needed amendment, staff divided the changes into two phases.  The initial amendment phase was approved by council in May of 2020.  The following amendment will bring all local development regulations into compliance with the adopted statutes.

Project Status:

  • Planning Board:  June 17,2021 at 6:30 pm. Planning Board recommends approval with a modification.
  • City Council Public Hearing - Approved by City Council on 7/6/2021.
