Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program

The Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program (ZOAWP) or Work Program is adopted by the Board of Supervisors annually or biennially and establishes the priorities and timing for the development of amendments to the Zoning Ordinance. The amendment requests originate from the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, citizens, industry representatives, and county staff. In addition to the Work Program, the Priority 2 list consists of those amendment requests that will be reviewed for future inclusion on the Work Program.

The 2020 ZOAWP was endorsed on September 15, 2020 for a two-year cycle. A status update for any needed re-prioritization of items will be presented to the Board of Supervisors in 2021. The ZOAWP includes topic-specific amendments as well as the Zoning Ordinance Modernization Project, or zMOD.
