BACKGROUND

Background

Guilford County currently maintains its codified ordinances on the Municode software platform. In conjunction with the Unified Development Ordinance UDO project, the county will be moving away from Municode and will list its codified ordinances on EnCode Plus. EnCode Plus is a subsidiary of Municode and offers advanced tools to support planning and development ordinances while meeting all of the expectations for online access to the general code. The new tool allows integration with our GIS technology for mapping and visualization of land use requirements and zoning regulations and offers opportunity for expansion to allow users to submit projects online and check their status.

 

Part of the re-launch of the codes includes consolidation of the two separately maintained sections back into one code. The public hearing and authorization to consolidate the codes back into one document is the last step in the project for a centralized and unified Code of Ordinances which will now be easily accessible to the public; meeting the Board's goals of improved transparency.
