The City of Georgetown Planning Department is hosting a public open house on Wednesday, March 6, to provide information on proposed revisions to the Unified Development Code. The open house meeting is 4-6 p.m. in the upstairs community rooms at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.
The City’s development code contains rules and guidelines for residential and commercial development in the city, including building heights, zoning, landscape requirements, signs, and rules for special districts. The proposed UDC revisions include Certificate of Appropriateness process revisions, parkland dedication changes, public notification guidelines, and residential design standards.
At the open house, Planning Director Sofia Nelson will give a brief presentation on the items at 4:15 and 5:15 p.m. The remainder of the time at the open house is for interaction with planning department staff members at tables grouped by topic. In addition, written public comments will be accepted at the meeting. Public comments from the meeting will be provided to the UDC Advisory Committee for its meeting on March 13, to the Planning and Zoning Commission for its meeting on March 19, and to City Council for its meeting on March 26.
