Draft Zoning Ordinance - 1/24/2017

The City proposes the adoption of a new Zoning Ordinance to assist in attaining the goals set forth by the adopted Future Land Use and Development Plan. These goals in large part seek to improve, revitalize, and redevelop the traditional core of our community in a manner that is context appropriate, as well as develop the remainder of our city in an orderly, well-planned fashion. 

Below you will find links to the full draft ordinance, as well as the two maps referenced in the ordinance - One map displaying zoning districts for the "traditional area" of Athens, covering the historic core of the City, and another covering the proposed zones for the "conventional area" of our City.  Feel free to download the draft ordinance and its ancillary maps and take a look!
