Unified Development Ordinance


With a construction rebound from the 2008 recession underway in Yorkville, commercial and residential development has boomed since 2013 with new construction permits averaging 120 per year for the past 5 years. The United City of Yorkville has begun the process of drafting a Unified Development Ordinance to consolidate all the City’s development ordinances into a single document to meet the needs of our growing community.  A Unified Development Ordinance, or UDO, combines traditional zoning and subdivision regulations, along with other  city regulations into a single document.  The City is seeking to create an easy to use document which combines the Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Regulations, Landscape Ordinance, and Appearance Code.  

The City has issued a Request for Proposal for this project as it will be conducted by an outside consultant.  The timeline of events and documents for this project are shown below.
