Can anyone point me in the direction of successful examples of villages created by a village zoning ordinance? A successful model village zoning ordinance would be helpful. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

Village Zoning Ordinance

There was a planning advisory report published by the American Planning Association in the early 1990s titled "Reinventing the Village," which probably has some model language in it. You can obtain the report from APA (www.planning.org), then go to planners bookstore.

The City of Lacey in Washington adopted a Village Ordinance in 1995 or thereabouts. You may want to contact the Planning Department to find out if it has been effective.

Community Development Department
PO Box 3400, Lacey, WA 98509-3400
Phone: 360-491-5642
E-mail: planning@ci.lacey.wa.us

Good luck!
