South Santa Rosa News – March 9, 2020

Santa Rosa County Development Services will host a March 19 Land Development Code (LDC) workshop to review proposed “significant changes” in the governing document which have been developed during the past several months as part of the update process.

Goals of the update have included modernizing the code to better address new uses and initiatives, eliminating unnecessary regulations, encouraging quality development and streamlining the code to make it easier for the public to use and understand, per county staff.

The LDC contains regulations that govern how land is developed in the unincorporated areas of the county and addresses everything from zoning, site development, the natural environment and storm water management to parking, sidewalks and landscaping. 

The workshop is scheduled for 6 p.m., Thursday, March 19 at 6 p.m. at the County Administrative Complex, located at 6495 Caroline St. in Milton.
