As Hall County nears the completion of its Unified Development Code and the update to its Comprehensive Plan, the public is invited to one final round of input and feedback at the Gainesville Chicken Festival on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lake Lanier Olympic Park.
Hall County staff, along with consultants from TSW, will be located just outside of the event gates to update citizens on proposed regulations in Hall County, which would govern zoning, subdivisions and stormwater, while providing citizen feedback directly to Hall County staff.
“The most important voice in this process is the voice of Hall County’s citizens and stakeholders. We encourage everyone to make their voice heard as we continue this critically important process,” Director of Hall County Planning and Development 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. It works in conjunction with the county’s Comprehensive Plan, which outlines the roadmap for future development in the county.
Those who cannot attend the event but who wish to provide feedback may email PlanningAndDevelopment@HallCounty.org.
