Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The general purpose of this Unified Development Ordinance, also known as the UDO, is to guide and manage the development of Morrisville in a way that takes into account present and future needs and resources and that protects the health, safety, prosperity, and general welfare of the Town’s citizens and landowners. The UDO is also intended to implement the goals, objectives, and policies in the Land Use Plan, Transportation Plan, Town Center Plan, and other plans adopted by Town Council guiding the Town’s growth and development.

Amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance are often necessary due to changes in state or federal law, updates to the Comprehensive Plan, and needed minor corrections or clarifications.  Text amendments can only be initiated by the Planning Director, Planning and Zoning Board, or Town Council.  A complete list of adopted amendments and amendments currently being reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Board or Town Council is available in the “Unified Development Ordinance: Book of Amendments” document. Contact Michele Stegall, Planning Director, at or 919-463-6196 for more information about text amendments.
