​Title 130 Zoning Ordinance Updates

Since adoption of the Zoning Ordinance Update (ZOU) in December 2015, Planning staff identified a list of minor amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and limited, parcel-specific corrections to the adopted Zoning Map (Project File No. OR 17-0001) to correct documented mapping errors, correct typographical/grammatical/formatting errors, clarify language, correct inaccurate/obsolete code and document references, and consolidate/renumber adopted zoning regulations not included in the 2015 ZOU.  Several major amendments were also identified and are proposed to be considered by the Board of Supervisors (Board) as part of a separate update effort (Project File No. OR 17-0002). 

On June 28, 2018, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to consider the proposed Zoning Ordinance minor amendments and limited parcel-specific corrections to the adopted Zoning Map (Project File No. OR 17-0001).  The public hearing notice is posted here.   The staff memo and attachments are posted on the County's online agenda calendar:  https://eldorado.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx (See Planning Commission agenda 6/28/2018, agenda item No. 6, Legistar file No. 18-0942).
