Tune Up Program


On December 11, 2019, the Regional Planning Commission initiated periodic amendments to Title 22 (Planning and Zoning) of the County Code to correct errors, and to improve consistency and coherency. These amendments, known as “tune ups,” are generally technical and will be accomplished by ordinance.
