The comment period for the UDO Draft-1 is complete, and all submitted comments can be viewed HERE. We appreciate the thoughtful comments received from residents, businesses and community organizations.
During the next several weeks, city staff will be reviewing and discussing all comments, meeting with the City Council for their guidance, and sending revision requests to our consultant, Camiros, for incorporating into Draft-2. The release of Draft-2 and the zoning map are expected in the second quarter, along with a schedule of topic-focused presentations and workshops for the public.
Looking ahead, the Mayor expects the final version of the UDO, including the text and map, to be released this Summer, followed by Public Hearings and advisory opinions from the DRC and city and county planning boards. SEQRA and the Council vote on the long-awaited UDO will be the final steps.
