According to the Planning website, “[t]he zoning code has not been comprehensively rewritten in over 30 years.” The county has grown tremendously since then and many of the zoning codes have now become outdated and redundant.  So, after a great deal of work, the County Council adopted these these zoning code changes on March 5, 2014.
