Development Code Docket
The development code docket is a list of proposed changes to County land use and development regulations. Anyone may request a change, and all requests are first put on a Preliminary Docket.  Next, the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) decide which items, if any, will go from the Preliminary Docket to the Official Docket through the Docketing Process (PDF) (detailed memo on docket process, PDF). The BoCC then forwards the Official Docket to staff and the Planning Commission for analysis, review and public hearings.  After the Planning Commission completes its work, items go back to the BoCC, which decides whether or not to adopt them as regulation. 

County Development Code Regulations
These County codes (also referred to as Titles, or chapters within a Title) are updated or revised through the Development Code Docket process.
