Columbus Land Development Ordinance Update

Columbus Land Development Ordinance Update

COLUMBUS – The City of Columbus is updating its Land Development Ordinance, and is looking for the public’s input on the matter.

An informational meeting was held on Tuesday night, where representatives from Kendig Keast Collaborative, a professional firm hired to assist with the new LDO, provided the public with an update on the new ordinance’s status.

With the original LDO being over 20 years old, the City is looking to gather feedback from the public on what changes they want to see in the new version of the ordinance. Kendig Keast Senior Associate David Baird says one of the key improvement areas that is being worked on is the City’s vague zoning ordinances, as the goal is to make the process easier for land developers.

Baird also says that the process will take a year-and-a-half to complete, and that the group is currently developing the first module of the plan, with the hope being to share the draft with the public in January.
