UDC Amendments – General and Executive

The City of Georgetown Unified Development Code (UDC) undergoes regular review in order to ensure that the Code promotes sound, stable, and desirable development within the jurisdiction of the City, to correct errors in the text or to accommodate changed or changing conditions in a particular area. Amendments to the UDC are processed as either General Amendments reviewed by the UDC Advisory Committee or Executive Amendments not reviewed by the Committee which include those that are legally necessary, incorporate previously approved ordinances or determinations, or are emergency amendments (City Council designated). Below is information and links for the UDC Advisory Committee as well as information on proposed Executive and General Amendments under review or consideration.

UDC Advisory Committee

The Unified Development Code Advisory Committee is a seven member City Council appointed group responsible with reviewing proposed amendments to the UDC and providing recommendations on those amendments to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. While the Committee will primarily process amendments included on a City Council approved list of General Amendments, they may from time to time review Executive Amendments based on City Council direction. The meeting date and time for the Unified Development Code Advisory Committee is the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 3:00 PM. in the Large Conference Room at the Planning Department Office, 406 W. 8th Street, Georgetown, Texas. These meetings are open to the public and allow for public discussion of posted topics.
