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.

For the purposes of web download, the 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 2015-034, which relate to the development standards, rules and procedures that affect properties in the Historic Overlay District and/or listed on the Historic Resource Survey.  These changes were effective July 1, 2015 and have been incorporated into the code.  Please contact the Planning Department with any questions by emailing
