The Zoning Ordinance Work Program (ZOWP) or Work Program is adopted by the Board of Supervisors annually 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 Zoning Ordinance Work Program for fiscal years 2022 and 2023 was endorsed on October 5, 2021, for a two-year cycle. Recognizing that Zoning Ordinance amendments often require more than one year to complete, including research and community outreach, the ZOWP is presented for a two-year cycle with annual updates to ensure that the Work Program continues to reflect the Board’s priorities.
