UDO & LDR Update Project
The Indian Trail Town Council initiated an update to the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and Land Development Regulations (LDR) manual in March of 2018. The UDO serves as the regulatory document establishing the location of uses (i.e. homes, businesses, etc.) and requirements associated with new development (i.e. parking, signage, landscaping, architectural standards, etc.).
Homeowners regularly refer to the UDO when contemplating improvements to their properties such as making additions or adding accessory structures like swimming pools and sheds. Business owners utilize the UDO when contemplating expansions, adding signage, and making other improvements. Developers of new subdivisions and commercial sites must build their infrastructure to the standards set by the LDR manual.
This project serves as a 10-year strategic update to these important documents. Updates to the UDO will take into account changes in State law, court rulings, improvements to ensure best management practices are utilized, and formatting improvements to make the document more user-friendly. Updates to the LDR manual will ensure infrastructure is being constructed to current industry standards and is compliance with Federal and State requirements. Formatting improvements will also be made to ensure the LDR manual is user-friendly.
