Essential Elements of Successful Zoning Codes
Over the past 100 years, zoning regulations have become increasingly complex and sometimes difficult for property owners to understand and interpret. This increasing complexity is making it more difficult for residents to understand their city’s plan for the future and how it will specifically affect their property or neighborhood. In this session, we explore proven organizational elements, content, and publishing techniques that have helped communities ensure that their zoning codes are accessed and clearly understood by users.
2020: What Just Happened?
The pandemic forced us to take a different approach to business-as-usual. In this webinar we share lessons learned, what worked well, what needs attention and what is already being planned for the next time we are faced with an emergency situation.
The user-centered government movement reflects changing public expectations regarding readability and service delivery of zoning regulations. In this session, we explore how to author and update user-centered zoning codes, and how to employ user-centered processes and technology that narrows the growing gap between complex zoning regulations and how they are communicated to the public.
