Land Development Code Interpretations

LDC interpretations are made by Planning and Design Services staff through the authority of the Planning Director where the language within the LDC is ambiguous, unclear or where a specific use or provision is absent. Interpretations may not be made that contradict specific references within the LDC.

You may access the following recent LDC interpretations at the Permit Data Portal. Once at that page, click Permit / Case / Docket Number at the lower left part of the screen and enter the associated case number (e.g. 15INTERPTN1001).
