Zoning and Subdivision Update 2017
The Town of Occoquan has contracted with Burns & McDonnell to assist the Town in updating Chapters 54 and 66 (Subdivisions and Zoning, respectively) of the Town Code. This process comes on the heels of the completion of the 2016 update to the Town's Comprehensive Plan. The update process is intended to clean up these two sections of the code, ensure accurate references and meet State Code requirements, and align the documents with the intent of the recently revised Comprehensive Plan.
The process began in March 2017 and a community meeting to obtain initial public input was held on Thursday, April 20, 2017. Below are links to the drafts and proposed changes that were discussed during the community meeting. Please provide your comments by Friday, April 28, 2017 to Angeline Crowder or Tom Egeland. A public hearing will be held on the proposed changes to the Code, and is anticipated to be adopted by the Town Council in the summer of 2017.
Once the revisions to Chapters 54 and 66 are completed, the Town will begin the process to recodify the entire Town Code, a task that has not been undertaken since 1999. This process is expected to begin during the summer of 2017.
