  • View a list of MPC Recommended CHANGES that were incorporated into the April 25, 2017 Code Draft
    • The changes between the April 24 Draft and April 25 Draft are as follows (these are also documented in the lists of changes above):
      • 1.3.3.B.1 - The City Attorney recommended the addition of the second sentence of this paragraph; this was done after the formal MPC recommendation, but was incorporated into the code. It is highlighted in blue for clarity.
      • 2.7.4 - MCAS attorney requested that AICUZ language be clarified to match current UDO particularly regarding residential development in noise zones
      • 2.7.5 - The MPC had previously made us aware that the Beaufort County Airport Overlay District standards were not brought forward into the Beaufort Code. These were added to the April 25 version. This occurred after the formal Recommendation, but was based on a previous recommendation. The language added was coordinated with Beaufort County.
      • 10.5.1 - MPC recommends that the definition of administrator be defined to name the Planning Director; use verbiage from existing UDO.
  • View a list of ALL MPC Recommendations discussed during the 8 work sessions that occurred during March and April. This list is based on the unresolved public comments list.

*reviewer notes: highlighted text indicates a change or addition based on the MPC recommendations; red striken-through text indicates text that was removed based on the MPC recommendations; blue highlight indicates a change or addition after the MPC formal recommendation (only one in 1.3.3.B.1); [bracketed italic text] indicates references to the existing UDO - these will be removed in the final version.
