The Town of Parker’s Community Development Department is pleased to announce the second of three installments of the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) Modernization Project, Module 2 – Development Standards, is complete and available for public review and comment through Feb. 18, 2022 at: www.LetsTalkParker.org/LDO-Modernization
The Community Development Department's Planning Division, along with consultant Clarion Associates, continue to work on a comprehensive update of the LDO. The LDO, Title 13 of the Parker Municipal Code, governs land use and development within Parker. Its purpose is to preserve and promote the public health, safety and general welfare of the community. It is one of the most important tools to implement the vision and goals of the Parker 2035 Master Plan—including guiding growth and development in the Town of Parker.
This second installment, Module 2 – Development Standards, includes the following chapters:
- Chapter 13.02: Rules of Construction and Definitions (partial)
- Chapter 13.08: Development Standards
- Chapter 13.09: Sign Code
The proposed changes in this public draft build on the previous work in phase 1 of this project, which included community and stakeholder outreach and meetings, resulting in the LDO Diagnostic Report, Annotated Outline and Project Charter that will inform the project. Public comments about this draft can be submitted on the project page at www.LetsTalkParker.org/LDO-Modernization or through email. A Memorandum summarizing the major changes in the draft regulations from the current LDO is also available to assist individuals who wish to review the draft, as is a public draft of the first installment, Module 1 – Zoning Districts & Uses, that was completed in 2020.
Next Steps – Comments from the public review period (running through Feb. 18, 2022) will help to inform the final draft of Module 2, which will then be inserted into the final ‘Consolidated Draft’ of the new LDO. The Consolidated Draft will include all three modules, represent the new Land Development Ordinance, and is anticipated to be posted for public review and comment later in 2022 after completion of the final installment, Module 3 – Administration and Procedures.
