Regulatory Changes

To further implement the Community Redevelopment Plan, the CRA received approval from the CRA Board in 2019 to move forward with changes to the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Development Code. Since the first public meeting in October 2019, the BGTCRA Advisory Board, CRA staff, Growth Management staff have continued to review and draft changes to meet the intent of the redevelopment plan.  On January 11, 2021 the updates to the proposed LDC drafts were presented at the CRA Advisory Board meeting, where staff received direction to move forward with the LDC and Growth Management Plan (GMP) amendment review process.

The CRA is processing two regulatory changes:
