How do UDO?

We, in the Community Development Department, understand that Zoning and Subdivision Regulations are not things most people spend a lot of time thinking about.  These policies and regulations don’t tend to be very exciting or are written in a way that makes you want to read them for entertainment.  However, these things significantly shape our neighborhoods, shopping centers and where we work and play.  

Because these regulations and planning tools are so important to our community, the City of Manhattan is working on the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) project, which will update and combine these regulations into one document.  The purpose of this information series about the UDO is to break this large document of regulations into manageable pieces of information covering new and/or important topics on housing, commercial and industrial developments.  Hopefully, we can present the information in a way that is easy to understand, and who knows… you may get excited about community planning and how these regulations shape our City.

The first installment of How do UDO? is to introduce the UDO and talk about the proposed new zoning districts.
