Organization and Codification of a Zoning Ordinance


May 31, 2016 - Kurt Schindler

There is logic to the way a zoning ordinance is organized. This bulletin presents one example of how to codify a zoning ordinance. The example presents a system that might be used for all zoning ordinances in a county. Doing so can be a public service to help those who work with several different zoning ordinances. With the standardization of ordinance organization, it is easier for a person using many ordinances to be able to find and compare particular sections.
