You are invited to help the Town of Parker kick off the update and modernization of its current Land Development Ordinance (LDO)! Please join us for a brief presentation at 5:30 p.m. to learn more about this very significant Town initiative followed by a question-and-answer period with an opportunity to provide initial feedback.
Wednesday, Feb. 20 ∙ 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. ∙ The Schoolhouse (19650 Mainstreet)
The LDO was originally adopted at the time of the Town's incorporation in 1981 from County zoning. Portions of the LDO have stayed unchanged for over 30 years, while others have been revised in response to policy changes over time. These incremental updates and revisions have created gaps, inconsistencies and ambiguity within the regulations – resulting in challenges for the public, the development community and Town staff as the LDO is interpreted and implemented. The Town, along with consultant team Clarion Associates, will modernize the LDO into a user-friendly document.
The updated LDO will facilitate a more transparent, modern and efficient approach to how the Town manages future growth and development by better aligning the LDO with the vision, goals and policies of the Parker 2035 Master Plan and other adopted planning documents. Other benefits of this project include adoption of best practices in zoning and a more efficient, easier-to-use regulation.
Modernizing the LDO is a complex process and requires a thoughtful approach. Because of this, the project will take approximately 36 months and is scheduled for completion by the end on 2021.
Watch for our project webpage coming soon to Let’s Talk Parker (www.LetsTalkParker.org) to get even more involved! The Let's Talk Parker page will provide residents who are unable to attend our community meetings an opportunity to provide feedback on this important project.
