The City of Lubbock is making a Unified Development Code, which will revise, update and combine all current development-related ordinances and regulations into a single document.

The creation of this Unified Development Code is a primary objective of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted by the Lubbock City Council back in December of 2018.

The Unified Development Code will modernize existing regulations, including zoning and subdivision regulations, the sign ordinance, design district standards and other development regulations.

According to Kristen Sager, Interim Director of Planning, the goal is to provide the tools necessary to effectively implement the Comprehensive Plan, ensure that regulations reflect modern development trends and facilitate growth and administrative efficiency, and provide for uniform enforcement and predictable, repeatable results.

The public is invited to attend the joint meeting of the City Council and the Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday, July 25th at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers. More info on this project can be found at mylubbock.us/UDC.
