The most important item the Spring Hill BOMA will vote on in 2018 is the City’s new Unified Development Code, or UDC.
Development, zoning and land use have long been a very sensitive subjects in Spring Hill. Our current Zoning Ordinance is over 30 years old, and does not offer the protection needed to ensure development is favorable to residents or the City.
Over a year ago, the City initiated an overhaul of the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations into a new Ordinance that will offer the City and residents control and predictability over future development that we all desire. I’ve been proud to work on the Zoning-Update Advisory Committee that has produced the new Ordinance that will serve the City for years to come and provide the control the residents and City need to avoid poor development and projects.
The City will hold a series of Open House’s to present the UDC, and collect feedback and input from Citizens.
Feb 8th Open House from 5:30 pm to 8:30 PM. Additional information here.
Feb 9th Open House from 7:30 am to 12 noon. Additional information here.
Feb 10th Open House from 9 am to 12 noon. Additional information here.
A full draft copy of the Ordinance is published and can be accessed here.
If you’re only going to pay attention to one thing in Spring Hill over the next year…make it this issue. Read the new Ordinance, attend an Open House, email/call Aldermen, give your feedback. Make your voice heard.
Nothing else in 2018 will impact the future of our City as much as the passage of the UDC.
