Review the report online here.
The report is guided by community input from the November workshop, and includes a project overview, current policy direction, and what we’ve learned. It points out key opportunities to improve the code in terms of format and graphics, administration, flexibility, market responsiveness, and best practices. The proposed solutions include a brief introduction to the rewrite, annotated outline, next steps, timeline, downtown ideas, and references.
The code writing is underway, with a first draft expected this summer. After giving time for public review, community workshops will offer a time for feedback to make sure we heard you correctly. This ongoing community feedback will be incorporated into a second draft, expected in late 2017. Check back here, where updates will be posted as they are available.
If you need to get up to speed on the background for the code update, here is a good starting point. And you can follow each step in the process by perusing the diary updates preceding this one. They’re in reverse chronological order.
