UPDATE ON COUNTY CODE AMENDMENTS
Posted April 13, 2016
The CLPOA has been actively involved in the County’s efforts to update their land use code for several years. We are pleased to see that the process is nearly complete.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing on March 17, 2016 and forwarded their draft of the revised code to the Board of County Commissioners. The Board of County Commissioners will conduct a public hearing at 6:00 p.m. on April 28, 2016 and will take testimony on the latest draft. It is likely that an additional (and hopefully final) hearing will be scheduled in May or early June to adopt the code.
In its current form, the proposed code is 395 pages long and it addresses all land use and development issues in the unincorporated part of the County. The CLPOA limited its review and commentary on the code to the chapter on site disturbance and waterfront issues. While we still have a couple of issues that we are advocating to be changed, the site disturbance provisions are vastly improved over the current requirements. The new code allows much greater flexibility for waterfront owners to manage their waterfront, repair and replace existing improvements, and enhance their property. Accordingly, the CLPOA is supportive of the adoption of the changes.
