The City of Evansville and Vanderburgh County are in the process of updating the existing Zoning Ordinances and Subdivision Regulations. The last major update of the current zoning codes occurred in 1962. The subdivision ordinance has not been substantially updated since 1984. Over the years, Evansville and Vanderburgh County’s development patterns have changed but the codes have not adapted to respond to these changes. In order to bring the ordinances up-to-date so they are consistent with today’s planning practices while allowing for development flexibility and creativity, the APC will update the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance into a UDO
A Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) is a legal document that combines the traditional zoning ordinance and subdivision regulations, along with other desired regulations such as design guidelines, sign regulations, etc. into one comprehensive document. The new UDO will govern land use, the subdivision of land, and development patterns in both Evansville and Vanderburgh County. This Ordinance will remove/replace out-of-date regulations, provide new processes, and incorporate flexibility in the Ordinance for more creative and appropriate development. The new UDO will contain tables and graphics, so it is easier to use and understand. It will also simplify the review processes to be less cumbersome and allow for developers, residents, and business owners to obtain approvals quicker and less cumbersome by navigating the regulations through a user-friendly format.
