This amendment is in response to legislation approved as part of the 2024 Session of the General Assembly, which retroactively validated the modernized Zoning Ordinance (zMOD) adopted on March 9, 2021, as part of an electronic meeting. The amendment will consider re-adoption of the seven amendments to 112.2, as they need to be readopted as part of Chapter 112.1 before it becomes effective again on July 1, 2024.
