Manhattan Development Code

The city is under contract with Kendig Keast Collaborative to develop a new unified development ordinance (UDO) that consolidates existing zoning and subdivision regulations, as well as land use and design guidelines, into a comprehensive guide for development in the community. Once adopted it will be called the Manhattan Development Code (MDC). You can view the public roll-out site here.
