Bryan County will hold a public input forum for North Bryan residents, giving those who are interested the opportunity to help shape the county’s new zoning and development regulations, which will be consolidated into a unified development ordinance (UDO).
The workshop, slated for 6-8 p.m. Thursday, March 28, will be held at Hendrix Park Gymnasium, 3960 Wilma Edwards
Road in Ellabell. Residents’ guidance is sought as the county updates its regulations relating to subdivisions, site development, land use, parking, landscaping and other related matters. A similar workshop will be held in South Bryan County in late April.
The existing codes were last amended in the 1990s, and Bryan County has experienced significant change since then. In 2018, the County adopted an interim development ordinance (IDO) to temporarily address some of the codes’ most significant shortcomings.
The workshops will provide residents with opportunities to learn about existing regulations, discuss alternative ways to address the county’s growth, and express their concerns and opinions, according to Bryan County consultant Michael Lauer, and the County’s Community Development staff.
