Thank you to everyone who submitted comments during the public review for UDC version 3. We appreciate the large amount of interest and thoughtful comments on the draft regulations. We are now in the process of reviewing and addressing the comments, and preparing the UDC for adoption.
UDC Next Steps
Over the next 30 days, we will be incorporating feedback and preparing the final draft UDC (version 4). In September, we anticipate releasing UDC version 4 to the Planning Commission and the public, along with a document that responds to comments on UDC version 3. When UDC version 4 is released to Planning Commission, the formal hearing and adoption process begins. Regarding the adoption of the new zoning code, Alabama state law requires at least two public hearings – one with the Planning Commission and one with the City Council. See the graphic below for an outline of the next steps for the UDC process.
We’ll send additional updates by email when specific dates are available.
