Thread: Simplifying our zoning codes and regulations

    Simplifying our zoning codes and regulations

    I have noticed a subtle trend where city are making their regulations more user friendly. Some of the terms and examples I have seen are dezoning (which is different from downzoning), using illustrations and diagrams, and multimedia and design. Has anybody else come across examples like these that they would be willing to share?

    Forsyth County, GA's unified development code has illustrations:

    For an example of a "visual interactive code," see City of Henderson, Nevada's web site.
