UDC Amendment Process

The Unified Development Code (UDC) is updated every five years. As amendments are submitted between Oct. 1 and Feb. 1, an updated list will be posted on this page. When similar amendments are submitted DSD will coordinate and review them with applicable representatives, including neighborhoods, school districts, military, development community, city departments, and additional organizations. This will minimize potential conflict with existing or proposed codes, and enhance the efficiency of the process.
