The City of Duluth has begun the process of updating and improving the majority of its codes and ordinances. The City has hired AMEC to assist in this process.

AMEC Environment & Infrastructure, Inc. (AMEC) provides planning, environmental, engineering, and design services.  AMEC’s Atlanta-based Planning and Design Group, in conjunction with urban planning firm Ross & Associates, is partnering with the City of Duluth to update the City’s land use and development regulations.   The AMEC team has worked with numerous Georgia communities to prepare unified development codes (UDCs), which combine zoning, signage, subdivision, erosion, flood protection and other requirements relating to development into a single ordinance.  The team’s approach is to make regulations effective by being easy to understand and administer.  This can be achieved by organizing topics to reflect the land development process, revising text for clarity, and using tables and illustrations. This modernized and streamlined document will provide an easier “one stop” code for citizens, City staff, and all interested parties regarding all facets of the planning and development processes, rules, and regulations

The unified code will be completed and adopted in 2014.

 AMEC planner Paige Hatley is AMEC’s primary contact (paige.hatley@amec.com).

Rich Atkinson (ratkinson@duluthga.net) is the main contact for the City.

Upcoming events- JANUARY 23, 2014 SIGN COMMITTEE/CODE UPDATE MEETING WILL BE HELD IN THE COMMUNITY ROOM AT CITY HALL.
