Members of the public are invited to give their feedback on proposed changes coming as part of the unveiling of the new Unified Development Code (UDC), a multi-year effort to combine and streamline all ordinances and regulations related to zoning, subdivisions and stormwater in Hall County.
An open house is planned for interested citizens and stakeholders from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 25 at the Hall County Government Center, located at 2875 Browns Bridge Rd. in Gainesville. The event includes presentations and time for questions with Hall County staff.
“The process of crafting Hall County’s UDC began in 2020, with the valuable input of Hall County residents and stakeholders. The new UDC will provide a simpler, more streamlined apparatus for zoning regulations, which are of vital importance as Hall County continues to grow and thrive,” Hall County Panning and Development Director Randi Doveton said.
A UDC combines zoning, subdivision, environmental and other regulations into a single code that determines what kind of development happens in unincorporated Hall County, where it can be built, and how dense it may be. A UDC also controls how development looks and works, including things like building materials, parking and landscaping. The UDC will work in tandem with Hall County’s Comprehensive Plan.
