[ARCHIVED] Land Development Code
It’s been 24 years since most of the existing development regulations of the City were adopted. Laws and standards governing development have changed considerably since then, as has development technology, and the expectations of citizens. For those reasons, the City proposed and has recently updated the land development codes of the City. Issues pertaining to Zoning and land use are not included in the proposed LDC.
The City has a number of codes that govern land development. Principal among those is the Subdivision Ordinance. The LDC consolidates all of those codes into a single document and enables them to function cohesively with all processes and procedures clearly spelled out. The LDC also comprehensively updates the standards that govern the design of development projects, streets, driveway locations, drainage, and infrastructure. With new development considering Angleton, it’s imperative that the City’s development codes be updated to ensure that those projects are developed in a responsible manner that reflects the land development expectations of the City and the advances in development technology.
