Unified Development Ordinance

Chatham County

Pittsboro, NC


Request for Proposals (RFP) To Develop a Unified Development Ordinance

Chatham County is requesting proposals from planning firms with experience in evaluating, researching, merging, and writing land use regulations to develop a Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) for the County. The Project will require a merge, rewrite, and update of multiple ordinances and regulations while evaluating and improving upon existing standards by incorporating additional documents provided. The UDO should be clear, flexible, predictable, consistent, and user friendly. Additionally, the purpose of creating a Unified Development Ordinance is to align development regulations with the vision of the Comprehensive Plan, Plan Chatham, in an effort to implement its goals. There will be a County project manager assigned to manage both this contract for code writing services and a second contract for planning services to a firm with meeting facilitation to assist in integrating feedback into the code writing process. The County project manager will facilitate and organize discussion between both selected firms over the duration of the project.
