UDO committee to meet Aug. 25

Published 10:05 am Friday, August 19, 2011

The Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Advisory Committee will hold its next meeting on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Polk County Senior Center in Columbus.
Polk County’s planning consultant, Dale Holland, will be present to continue the discussion concerning revisions to the subdivision section of the UDO.
The major discussion at the recent meetings has revolved around the two processes for subdivision approval; one is administrative and the other is quasi-judicial. The approval process used will be determined by the type of development and the environmental impact.
The committee discussed subdivision lot density/dimensions with the maximum density being one dwelling unit per two, three or five acres based on water and sewer capability. The group also discussed the environmental checklist and impact statement requirements.
The UDO committee welcomes public comment at every meeting and encourages anyone interested in this issue to attend the meeting on Aug. 25.
If you would like more information, a copy of the UDO Draft Subdivision Section is available on the county’s website www.polknc.org under the planning department.
