New Development Code, that Memphis Really Needs

Over the last several years the City and County have been moving towards adopting a new code system for all development in Memphis and Shelby County.

The new Unified Development Code (UDC), as it is referred to, will make good development easier and more effective for our community. Please go to the web site to read more about this effort and to become more familiar with how this new code system will do.

The Unified Development Code (UDC ) will be reviewed and voted on by the Land Use Control Board (LUCB) on Thursday May 28th at 5:30 in City Council chambers at 125 N Main - City Hall. This is the only issue before the LUCB and is being held at a special time so that people can come to the meeting. This is the first official step in get the new code approved. It would be good if the general public showed up to support the passing of the new code.
