Unified Development Code
The Unified Development Code, adopted by the City Council on March 25, 2003, is the primary guide to development within the City of Georgetown. The UDC incorporates procedures, standards and regulations for zoning as well as subdivision applications.
This document was codified, as of November 2015, and is now available with our Code of Ordinances: Code of Ordinances. This codified document allows searching capabilities that the pdf versions here do not. The code in regular text will be kept on this page during the transition period but we encourage you to start using the Municode version.
For the purposes of web download, the pdf document has been separated into chapters to allow viewing by users with slower internet connections.
The Code has been updated with the amendments from the adoption of Ordinance 2016-17, which relate to the development standards, rules and procedures that affect accessory structures. These changes were effective March 8, 2016 and have been incorporated into the code. Please contact the Planning Department with any questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
