The code update process officially kicked off this week, with two full days of stakeholder interviews held on December 11th and 12th. These interviews gave the consulting team an opportunity to hear first-hand from representatives of a wide range of stakeholder groups in the county about how the current Zoning and Subdivision Codes are working, and engage in discussions about emerging trends in land use and development in York County. These stakeholder
interviews will feed in to the code assessment that the consulting team is preparing over the coming months, and will help to shape the direction of the updates to the Zoning and Subdivision Codes.
On the evening of December 11th, following the first day of stakeholder interviews, the consulting team held a public project kickoff meeting that was jointly attended by the County Council and Planning Commission. This meeting was used to introduce the County's elected and appointed officials, as well as the public, to the code update process.
