CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Charlottesville officials are looking at rewriting the city’s zoning ordinance.

It’s the third part of the multi-year Cville Plans Together project, which has already looked into creating an Affordable Housing Plan and updating the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

Now, the city Department of Neighborhood Development Services wants to hear from the community about the draft zoning ordinance.

Charlottesville’s zoning ordinance is made up of municipal laws regulating the development of buildings and the use of land within the city limits.

There are two purposes behind the rewrite: ensuring that the ordinance effectively implements the Affordable Housing Plan and Comprehensive Plan and making other needed updates to streamline and clarify the ordinance itself.

The work to update the ordinance has been broken into three modules, with the first one focusing on identifying changes needed to zoning districts, the rules of measurement, the land use table and the zoning map.

Residents have several chances to weigh in on this process, including three community open houses that will be taking place Feb. 22, 23 and 25.

There will also be a Charlottesville Planning Commission work session on Feb. 28 and a Steering Committee meeting on March 1.

People can submit feedback through March 31.
