  • Amended Title 21 (Subdivisions) and Title 22 (Planning and Zoning) of the County Code to repeal drought tolerant landscaping and green building requirements that are now found in Title 31.

The ordinance became effective on April 28, 2016. A copy of the adopted ordinance will be posted on this webpage when it is available.
