Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program

The Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program (ZOAWP) or Work Program is adopted by the Board of Supervisors on an annual basis in the June/July timeframe and consists of a Priority 1 and a Priority 2 list of amendment requests, which originate from the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, citizens, industry representatives and county staff.  

  • The Priority 1 list contains the amendment requests that have been identified as priorities for Board constituents.  
  • The Priority 2 list consists of those amendment requests that will be reviewed for future Priority 1 consideration.  

The 2018 Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program was adopted July 10, 2018.  In 2017, an additional category for the Zoning Ordinance Modernization Project, or zMOD.  zMOD is a parallel effort being undertaken to modernize the Zoning Ordinance.
