The County of Orange has embarked on a comprehensive update to its Zoning Code to incorporate sustainable policies and best management practices. The updated Zoning Code is intended to achieve a new standard of sustainability and flexibility that will accommodate future technological advances.
As the County moves forward through this process, residents, business owners, community groups, advocacy groups, and stakeholders are welcome to participate in the process. Community workshops will be held over the next several months to provide information regarding the “Orange is the New Green” Zoning Code Update. During these workshops, County staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions. If you are interested in attending one of these upcoming community workshops, please see the schedule below.
The County welcomes your input and invites comments on the proposed revisions. To view and/or download the draft Zoning Code Update, please use the links below.
