We're re-doing our Comp Plan right now and then reforming our landuse code. As a part of this, we have created new land use "sections" (akin to zoning districts). We've reached an impasse regarding our existing zoning districts.
Currently we have 13 different districts (for a town of 3200 people) some of which have been created to serve a specific development.
Now, I think that we should re-do our zoning map to match the new districts. I would keep the PUD designations as they have their specific regulations, and perhaps create an overpay for the existing built-up part of town.
Our consultant has floated the idea of keeping our current zoning districts but applying the new districts to newly developed areas.
What are your thoughts? What has been done before? I want to simplify things by not adding the new districts to the current map, but would rezoning the entire town create a complicated quagmire the likes of which would kill me.
