As part of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning's (CMAP) Local Technical Assistance (LTA) Program, the City is beginning the process of updating and modernizing our Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Ordinance, Sign Ordinance, and Landscape and Tree Preservation Ordinance to create a Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). Originally approved in 1987, the Zoning Ordinance has been amended numerous times and would benefit from a comprehensive review and overhaul.
The City, CMAP, and local stakeholders - residents - will embark on a community-based process that aligns Waukegan's development regulations, land-use practices, and community vision with its 2020 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The UDO will help direct our future growth and build economic strength. Your opinion is invaluable!
