What is a Unified Development Code?

A Unified Development Code (UDC) combines zoning, subdivision, environmental, and other regulations into a single code that determines what kind of development happens in unincorporated Hall County, where it can be built, and how dense it is.  A UDC also controls how development looks and works, including things like building materials, parking, and landscaping.

What are the goals of this effort?

Hall County has contracted with Atlanta-based planning consultants TSW to help update existing County regulations and combine them into a UDC, with input from the community.  The process will be based on the following goals.

Communities can be shaped by choice, or they can be shaped by chance.  We can keep on accepting the kind of communities we get, or we can start creating the kind of communities we want.
