To ensure the Land Development Ordinance continues to effectively manage Greensboro's growth and development, this ordinance may be amended from time to time. After a review by staff to determine appropriate wording and potential impacts on other standards in the LDO, the typical text amendment process involves a public hearing before both the Planning Board and City Council. 

Below is a list of pending LDO amendments, their next steps and their tentative hearing dates:

Terrace Encroachment into Front Setback for Single Family Dwellings
Planning Board - December 20, 2017
City Council - January 16, 2018

Light Industrial Mixed Use Zoning / Artisan Manufacturing
Planning Board - January 18, 2018
City Council - February 20, 2018

To request an amendment to the LDO, or for more information on the pending amendments listed above, please contact Mike Kirkman at 336-373-4649.

Please note that as of July 2017, a $270 filing fee is required for LDO amendment requests to cover associated administrative and advertising costs.
